    Lotte Jones, a doll repair expert, needs a vacation. She books herself on a cultural tour for singles and travels with them to modern-day Troy, where she finds more of a change of scene than she'd bargained for in the midst of an attack by the Greek army threatening to destroy the last fragments of a mighty civilization. Part contemporary drama, part homage to Euripides' Trojan Women, Trojan Barbie tells the perpetually moving tale of Priam's widow, Hecuba, and her defenseless family, recast against the vivid reality of modern warfare. Poetic, compassionate, and tinged with great warmth and humor, Trojan Barbie is an epic war story with a most unlikely heroine, who always looks on the bright side even as past and present collide about her. Carmel O'Reilly, director of Sugan Theatre's St. Nicholas that A.R.T. presented in 2000, joins the Company for the first time to direct this imaginative work.

      Such an ART show, in that it's entirely postmodern: a sort of mash-up of TROJAN WOMEN and a british travelogue. The plot's about a modern doll maker who travels to Troy on holiday and is kidnapped... Expand
