WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hecuba is a moving, bitter tragedy about the interrelations between those who hold power and those who suffer it. It is the slaughter of Hecuba's daughter Polyxena and the discovery of the body of her son Polydorus which leads to Hecuba's progress from grief to despair, as confronted by her tormentors, she is forced to yield her dignity, her values and her self-respect. Her humanity destroyed, she takes revenge so hideously brutal, she is transformed into "the bitch of Cyrossema."
