By Euripides
Translated by William Arrowsmith
Directed by Christopher Peck

Set in the aftermath of the Trojan War, Hecuba, Queen of overthrown Troy, falls victim to the greed, deception, and injustice of the world around her. Upon the death of her two children, Hecuba revolts against those who have betrayed her in a chilling act of vengeance that not only cripples her enemies but her humanity as well.

"The most tragic of the poets." - Aristotle

"HECUBA was one of the best pieces of theatre I've seen...I was so impressed with every single element of the show.  You had a phenominal design team, and each of their production elements complimented each other and effectively helped portray the design concept.  Your cast was also spectacular...I have seen pieces of theatre here in Chicago where they did not perform to the energy or clarity level of this ensemble...Absolutely one of the best things I've ever seen on the Baylor Stage."--Danielle Stack (Baylor Theatre Alumni, 2011)

"Chris, you put on a riveting show!  Congratulations!  I saw HECUBA last night and was enthralled with it all.  This play IS still relevant.  It stirred in me all kinds of thoughts about authority, goodness/evil, revenge, justice, slavery, courage, and obviously loss and grief.  Your actors were skillful storytellers...Thanks for putting on such a beautiful, thoughtful show."--Carissa Olsen (Baylor Theatre Alumni, 2012)
