When the Trojan War begins. Laodamia does everything to keep her husband safe at home, but fate and politics conspire to put him at the invasion's frontline. Inspired by the surviving lines of Euripides' lost play Protesilaos, The Laodamiad explores grief through the eyes of literature's first war widow. This program is a staged reading with music.
