Troy: Sacrifice And Survival

Play #: 8409
Pages: 44 pgs
Cast: Cast: 7 m, 11 w. Much doubling possible.
The terrible waste of war never seemed more contemporary than in these quintessential tragedies by Euripides set before and after the siege of Troy. Far from being “historical dramas,” they speak to any generation embroiled in conflict. We see up close and firsthand that war is the most pitiful—and most poetic—of human activities.

Philip Lerman Talks About

TROY: SACRIFICE AND SURVIVAL

Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THESE ADAPTATIONS?

A: In 1998 I started a theatre company that would offer students hands-on experience to serious works of drama. These amateur actors wanted to perform classics. Modern plays tend to be more topical, built around a particular event. These are larger plays that teach larger lessons. The ethical problems remain true to life.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE ADAPTATIONS?

Every part and line.

Q: WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART IN CREATING THESE ADAPTATIONS?

A: Typing the scripts!

Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THESE ADAPTATIONS?

A: Simplified modern versions that makes the classics more accessible.

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?

A: I believe these adaptations remain true to the dramatic intent of the original classic.
