WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

On their way to start their new life at Delphi, six women are trapped in a foreign country that's about to be invaded. Caught between the two sons of Oedipus as they battle for their father's throne, the women bear witness to the devastating effects of war. Polyneikes stands outside the gates to the city demanding his brother's blood and the throne, which Eteokles refuses to relinquish while alive. Euripides's Phoenician Women tells the story of a family and a city, each about to fall unless the other is destroyed.
