Details

In the summer of 2016, thirteen Syrian refugee women left their lodgings in Jordan to tour the UK with their own adaptation of Euripides' great anti-war play, The Trojan Women. Backed by London's prestigious Young Vic Theatre, the women weaved their stories of exile and loss into the play. Alongside behind-the-scenes footage, we hear first-hand why this play can help people better understand what it means to be Syrian today. Followed by a screening of Queens of Syria and a post film discussion focusing on the UK refugee condition and the state of international mobility.
