Helping refugees overcome isolation, trauma, depression and giving them a platform to tell their stories to their host communities as well as building links and trying to provide new professional and personal opportunities are the core aims of the project.
"It was an extraordinary moment of connection across culture and time. It was a sharing of human pain, suffering, resilience, heroism and creative genius."

TROJANS - THE TOUR
A BRAND NEW ADAPTATION OF EURIPIDES’ ANTI-WAR TRAGEDY, THE TROJAN WOMEN
We're delighted to announce the start of our new, long term, country-wide project for refugees and host community members that will help cultivate cross-commuity ties and give our refugee participants a platform to tell their stories.
This project is aimed at Ukrainian, Afghan and Syrian refugees, as well as any other migrants and host community who wish to be involved.
We will be creating a brand new production of Euripides’ great anti-war tragedy, The Trojan Women, with a cast of refugees and host community members – including a core cast of refugees who have been professional actors in their own countries, and host community actors, with a chorus of amateur actor refugees and hosts from drama workshops we will hold around the UK. The multi-lingual workshops will also help the participants learn English.
Our pilot project of drama workshops will culminate in a London-wide 'mini tour' accompanied by further workshops run by the cast members for the local community.
