Queens of Syria: Giving an ancient tale a modern twist

Queens of Syria, an adaptation of Euripides's anti-war play The Trojan Women, features 13 female refugees, who mix the ancient Greek text with their personal experience of modern war.

The play is about to open at the Young Vic in London before touring the UK. Marilyn Rust reports.
