I WANT THE WORLD TO HEAR...
...BUT I WONDER,
WILL IT BE HEARD?"
The Trojan Women Project has been creating joint therapeutic drama and advocacy projects for refugees in the Middle East, Europe and the UK since 2013.
We are launching our Ukrainian Appeal in response to the recent outbreak of conflict. Refugees need to be welcomed when they arrive, given a sense of community, help and support - and a platform to tell their stories to the world.
More information about our new Ukraine appeal will be available shortly.
We also make documentaries about our projects to amplify and platform the voices of refugees to be heard as widely as possible.

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.
