Set after the fall of Troy in the 12th century B.C., Trojan Women tells the story of the women of Troy as they await their fate after their city has been destroyed, their husbands killed, and their remaining family enslaved. Trojan Women artistically explores the themes of honor, duty, and commitment as the women rebuild their lives. The production is directed by guest director Kristi Papailler, MFA, who has extensive experience as an assistant professor of acting and directing for Cal State San Bernardino.
“We in APU Theater Arts believe stories are a gift from God and are meant to be shared. Similarly, Biblical stories aim to have an effect on the reader, and we know they have succeeded when they stick with us. Our theatrical season in 2022-23 has the potential to bring us together as well as leave us with lasting impressions and a better understanding of humanity,” said Jill Lincoln, MA, chair of APU’s Department of Theater Arts.
APU’s plays and musicals are produced through a program of rigorous training. The Department of Theater Arts prepares outstanding, innovative, and influential artists in an ever-growing and multi-faceted performing arts profession.
