Translated by Robert Cannon, Andromache is an Athenian tragedy by Euripides. It dramatizes Andromache’s life as a slave, years after the events of the Trojan War, and her conflict with her master's new wife, Hermione. The date of its first performance is unknown, though scholars place it sometime between 428 and 425 BC, making it one of the earliest known plays. 

Peru Theatre Company’s stylized production, which features an originally composed score and emotive costumes, is directed by English and Speech Instructor Joshua Young. For more information, contact Young at 402-872-2285 or jyoung@peru.edu.
