Troy Story

Troy Story

“Who thinks we can go through the Iliad in 28 minutes? Me too.”

written and performed by NATALIE HAYNES

A whistlestop tour of the Trojan War, this show encompasses some of the greatest poetry ever written: The Iliad (performed faster than you’ve ever seen before) and The Odyssey. The stories of the women whose lives the war affected have been largely untold. Natalie Haynes takes these women out of the shadows and puts them back in the middle of the story. The performance is followed by an informal question and answer session.

Natalie Haynes wrote Hypsipyle for JST‚Äôs 15 Heroines. An acclaimed broadcaster and author (Pandora‚Äôs Jar, A Thousand Ships - shortlisted for Women‚Äôs Prize for Fiction 2020), five series of her show Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
