Trojan Women' Powerful in
Hamilton's Lyric Translation
By GAIL BLUMBERG
One recent critic called Ann
Arbor a wasteland in the Dramatic'
Arts. The Play of the Month pro-
duction of Euripides' "The Trojan
Women," seen at Hill Aud. last
night, goes a fair way towards
disproving that statement.
Edith Hamilton's translation
had a lyrical power which painted
Euripedes' picture of the pain and
cruelty of war with simplicity and
dignity. The production was able
to sustain a high level of intensity,
with little overstatement or back-
tracking. It was remarkable in its
tight unity and polished flow.
The striking quality of the per-
formance was due more to the
translation and staging than to
the acting. The original New York
production was done in the small
Circle in the Square theater in
Greenwhich Village. It gained an
encompasing power from the in-
timacy of the surroundings. For
once, Hill Aud. was adapted with
relative intelligence and success.'
The stage was drastically cut
down, by means of side drapery
and a large set of stairs leading
to a white screen backdrop, fairly
forward on stage.
There was no other scenery.
Sensitive lighting and stage move-
ment supplied interest and con-,
trast. The backdrop screen reflect-
ed the classic silhouettes of the
Trojan women, the dull glow of
the blazing city in, its last mo-
The use of the chorus of Trojan
women was one of the strong
points of the production. Not only
did it serve its traditional func-
tion of commentator, but it added
dynamically to the beauty and
power of the whole-chanting in
rising inflections and gliding back
and forth in stylized dance move-
ments. A rather effective sound
track backed up the chorus.
On the whole, the actors did a
competent job to uphold the dig-
nified flow of the lines. But only
in some cases did they rise above
Lynda Myles as Andromache,
wife of Hector, was outstanding,
especially in her handling of the
final moments with her son. Paul
Sorvino as Talthybius, although
having a rather small part, was
notable for the natural ease with
which he handled it.,
I am still of two minds about
Karen Ludwig's interpretation of
Cassandra, the mad daughter of
Hecuba, one of the play's more
difficult roles. The transitions be-
tween Cassandra mad and in her
saner moments were not entirely
convincing, slightly marring an
otherwise good performance.
Gretchen Kanne as Hecuba was
more awkward than dignified in
this very central role. She lacked
the power to tie together the
story; her tragic speeches often
seemed forced and unmotivated.
One of the more effective pieces
of acting was a recording of the
voice of Poseidon, at the beginning
of the play, done by Rod Steiger.
