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.
This volume contains 15 monologues in three complementary groups (The War, The Desert, The Labyrinth) - enough material for three complete productions. The monologues can also be performed individually, or in any combination.
