Publisher Description:
Two thousand years ago, the Roman poet Ovid gave voice to a group of inspirational women - queens, sorcerers, pioneers, poets and politicians - in a series of fictional letters called The Heroines. They were the women left in the wake of those swaggering heroes of classical mythology: Theseus, Hercules, Ulysses, Jason, Achilles...

Now, drawing inspiration from Ovid, fifteen leading female and non-binary British playwrights dramatise the lives of these fifteen heroines in a series of new monologues for the twenty-first century.

15 Heroines was commissioned by Jermyn Street Theatre, London, and first performed - online and in three parts - in November 2020, presented in partnership with Digital Theatre. This edition of all fifteen monologues is introduced by directors - Adjoa Andoh, Tom Littler and Cat Robey - and writer, broadcaster and classicist Natalie Haynes.

The War tells the untold stories of the Trojan War: Oenone, Hermione, Laodamia, Briseis and Penelope, written by Lettie Precious, Sabrina Mahfouz, Charlotte Jones, Abi Zakarian and Hannah Khalil.
