Support GREAT JONES REPERTORY on Kickstarter

Help bring The Great Jones Repertory Company's production of The Trojan Woman to the world.

The themes of The Trojan Women - war, genocide, atrocities aimed at women and children caught in endless struggles for power and wealth - are as relevant today as they were 2500 years ago. Will that ever change? That question is the basis for this project.

The funds being raised are for phase one of the project: a three-week teaching residency. This summer, 3 actors and one musician will travel to Guatemala City – Cambodia will follow after. During the residency, we will teach selected music and staging, and find ways to incorporate local performance traditions into the piece. And, through dialogue with leaders, artists, and professionals, we will explore how this project will grow. A fully-mounted production will be staged during the following year. After that, the production stays with our partners.
