The Suppliant Women

What: Refugee women arrive in Greece, fleeing their homeland and the threat of unwanted marriage. Will they be welcomed, or sent back to Egypt? To whose laws are they subject? Can the gods offer hope? Aeschylus’ tragedy from 463 BC looks to find meaning in forced migration, and asks what our obligation is to those fleeing sexual violence and seeking some sense of security. This is not a play about individuals, but about masses of people crossing borders in desperation, and not always being accepted when they arrive.
