The Trojan Women
The New York Times | An Angel Introduces Bats to Trojans
Supplee, as Hecuba, brings life to her character’s ruin, savaging the persistently self-absorbed Helen, who insists that none of the unfolding horror has been her fault.
DeAnna Supplee is a strong, distinguished presence.
“As if painted onto the wall, a turbaned, blindfolded woman sits, waiting... The music of the sea gradually bestirs the blindfolded woman, and from her commanding voice and gait, we gather that she is Hecuba (played by a marvelous DeAnna Supplee), former queen of Troy and war prize for the Greeks.”“Hecuba embodies all the nostalgia, mad sorrow and pride of her fallen Trojan citizens. Supplee delivers the fallen queen’s lines with wounded ferocity; even when she whispers, there is weight and regality behind it. Tears shine perpetually in Hecuba’s eyes...”
DeAnna Supplee’s Hecuba retains her dignity — and her sharp tongue — in even the most terrible circumstances.
...intense and unbreakable ...
...[DeAnna Supplee] dazzled.
