“He wanted to scratch his way into me and drum his victory tune against my ribs. I will not cry for him.”
Hermione is a beauty, a trophy men could kill for. But her fiancé, Pyrrhus, rejects her for newly widowed Andromaque, who he wants with an animal passion. He would do anything to get her, even threaten the life of her infant son. When Pyrrhus winds up murdered, the two women must answer for it.
This “Classic Cut” version of Racine’s epic tale of passion and murder is retold by its two ferocious female protagonists.
