157 Views

A dynamic filmed version of Rough Magic’s remarkable theatre production, HECUBA is a passionate reimagining of the aftermath of the Trojan War by internationally renowned playwright Marina Carr.

Surrounded by the devastation of her city, her husband slain, Hecuba waits in the throne room for the conqueror Agamemnon. She and her daughters now face a future beyond their control, in a history written by the victors.

An extraordinary ensemble cast (led by Aislin McGuckin, Brian Doherty and Owen Roe) offer a series of intense, dangerous, personal encounters and impossible choices in this visceral depiction of the effect of war and its cost to the individual.
