The Coastal Carolina University Theater production of "WAR (women)," a modern adaptation of Euripides' "The Trojan Women," opened Wednesday, Feb. 14, at the Edwards Black Box Theater and continues through Sunday, Feb. 25. Tickets are $12 general adult admission; $8 senior citizens, Lifelong Learners and military; $6 children; and free for HGTC and CCU students with a student ID.

Greg London, assistant professor of theater at Coastal, adapted the Greek tragedy and also directs the production, which features original music composed and played by Scott Pleasant, professor of English.

Euripides' tragedy explores the fates of the women of Troy after their city has been sacked, their husbands killed, and their remaining families are about to be taken away as slaves. Centering on the tragic figure Hecuba, this classical Greek tragedy depicts the horrific toll taken on women during times of war.

Cast members include Coastal students Leigh Hendrix, Paige Kasten, Caitlyn Pollack and Megan Parker. The Black Box Theater is located in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. Tickets for the performance may be picked up from Wheelwright Box Office Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. For more information call the Wheelwright Box Office at 349-2502.
