[January 26, 2013]  Lincoln College will present the play "The Trojan Women" as the first production of the spring semester. Dates for the performances are Feb. 13-16 at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday matinee on Feb. 17 at 2 p.m.

"The Trojan Women" was written in 415 B.C. by Euripides and concerns the sack of Troy by the Greeks. Not only is "The Trojan Women" a piece of classical theater, it is a history lesson dealing with the issues of war, the conduct of conquering armies and the consequences for a defeated society.

A company of 15 actors will be directed by Lincoln College Professor Kenneth Kendall, and the production will take place in the Meyer Theater in the Johnston Center for Performing Arts.
