Author(s): Lesia Ukrainka
Company: Live Canon and The Ukrainian Institute London

The Trojan story retold by Ukraine’s pioneering feminist writer, Lesia Ukrainka; a UK première in an award-winning new translation.

Imagine if you could see the future, but no one would believe anything you said. This is Cassandra’s fate. Stuck in besieged Troy and knowing exactly how the war will end, Cassandra sees the destruction unfold around her, just as she knew it would.

First published in 1908, Lesia Ukrainka’s poetic drama retells the story of the Trojan war, from Cassandra’s perspective. Nina Murray’s new translation won the Ukrainian Institute London’s 2021 Ukrainian literature in translation prize.
