Each year, Class 10, as suggested by the Waldorf curriculum, has embarked on the challenge of producing a tragedy from the golden age of Ancient Greek Theatre- one of the supreme achievements at the birth of Western Culture. The Class 10s have produced riveting and moving work each time, and this year’s production promises to be as vivid and enriching.
The story takes place just after the Trojan War, as the Greeks are heading home and depicts the grief of Hecuba, queen of the fallen city of Troy, over the sacrifice of her daughter and the revenge she takes over the added loss of her son. Already suffering from the multiple deaths of her husband and sons in the Trojan War, she tips over into the role of vindictive aggressor, and the play concentrates on the psychological process by which a victim turns into an avenger.
The major theme of the play, other than the misery and desolation caused by war, is that we alone (not the gods or Fate) are responsible for our own sorrows, and that we alone have the means to redeem our lives. There are no gods causing Hecuba’s madness; she is brought low by politics, expediency and greed.
