After 9 years of relentless stalemate, the tides are turning for Troy. Hector's army is camped on the beach after driving the Argives back to their ships in the bloodiest day of fighting that either army has seen in years. And rumour has it King Rhesus is on his way to aid Hector the fray... But as the Gods have always been able to see, it is what happens off the battlefield--behind the scenes and in the middle of the night--that will determine the fate of the soldiers and decide the course of civilisation.


Reviews of Fourth Monkey’s 2013 Trinity Buoy Wharf season:

‘This is how site-specific theatre should be done.’ ***** A Younger Theatre on Project Colony

‘Fourth Monkey, once again, reinvents a classic text into an ambitious physical theatre piece.’ The Stage on Paradise Lost 

Based in London, multi-award nominated Fourth Monkey Theatre Company has evolved to become one of the most innovative actor training providers operating in the country today. The company offers a relevant, contemporary and forward-thinking training for actors across two courses of one or two years, with an emphasis on repertory theatre. Fourth Monkey has forged a viable path, subsequently followed by organisations such as the National Youth Theatre, for those looking for an alternative to traditional conservatoire training as a means of entering the industry.
