The Wooster Group will present the world premiere of CRY, TROJANS! February 27 – March 9 at REDCAT, 631 W 2nd St in Downtown Los Angeles, 90012. The Group’s latest production tackles the Trojan side of Shakespeare’s dark and scabrous Trojan War play about sincere love corrupted and the downfall of a noble hero. The piece originated as a co-production between The Wooster Group and the Royal Shakespeare Company for the World Shakespeare Festival, presented in conjunction with the 2012 London Olympics. In that version, the RSC played the Greeks and the Group played the Trojans. Director Elizabeth LeCompte and the Wooster Group have converted the collaboration into an independent piece, reimagining the Trojans as a pastiche fictional tribe of early Americans struggling to assert its dignity in the face of doom. Ticket prices range from $25 – $50 and are available at www.redcat.org/event/wooster-group-4.
