Euripides, arguably the first modern playwright, dissects the relationship between powerbrokers and their victims. Hecuba, the proud Trojan queen, is first a grieving mother, then a cruel avenger, and finally is dehumanized in the name of political necessity into the "bitch of Cynossema." Directed by Shepard Sobel. A new translation by Janet Lembke and Kenneth J. Reckford.
