Shadows of Troy is a bold new adaptation of two giants of ancient theatre - SophoclesAjax, and EuripidesIphigenia at Aulis. A new translation presents these plays in tandem, creating a truly epic narrative of the most famous war in Western history.

Under pressure to begin their campaign in Troy, the Greeks wait to set sail. Military tension erupts into familial agony when a seer declares that Agamemnon’s daughter Iphigenia must be sacrificed before the army can depart. A battle of military honour and filial devotion follows, leaving Agamemnon and his wife Clytemnestra ravaged by doubt and guilt.

In the second act, SophoclesAjax is radically adapted, with Agamemnon taking the place of the title role. As he descends into madness, the ensuing plot explores the extremes of human anguish, anger, and compassion.

University of Oxford students present these two seminal works in one bold adaptation, full of the power, politics and passion which resonate as strongly today as ever.
