The Last Days of Troy


This play contains some scenes of violence and occasional strong language.  Also contains loud music.

Not suitable for children under 14 years old

Written by Simon Armitage, we present a modern retelling of The Last Days of Troy.

Two civilisations, an ancient war, legendary heroes, noble losers, conflict, revenge, pride, lies and self-deception.  The desperate actions of the battle-weary lead to extreme and unexpected reactions, both on earth and among the Gods of Olympus.
Simon Armitage’s tells the intruiging and dramatic tale of the final battles of the Trojan war in THE LAST DAYS OF TROY, concluding Homer’s Iliad, and showing us how the war came to a dramatic and brutal conclusion.

This play retains the essence of the great classics (think Homer, Achilles, Trojan horses, a face that launched a thousand ships…) but has been re-imagined by director Stephen Davies (Macbeth, 1984) to the modern day, looking at how we are locked in the same cycles of conflict and revenge, and of east versus west, of opposing sides.   UNMISSABLE DRAMA.

Dates: Friday 19 to Saturday 27 May 2023 (not including Sunday 21 May), curtain up at 7.45pm.  Matinee performance on Saturday 20 May from 2pm.  

Directed by Stephen Davies
