Children of War is a mash-up of classical myth, the news of today and the voices of tomorrow.

The Danger Ensemble, working with Vanguard Youth Theatre, daringly dissect the age-old relationship between children and war, setting the modern mass media and the untold stories of the children born of the Trojan War on a collision course.

Based on The Illiad, tells the story of the Trojan War from both sides of the wall.  Written by Chris Beckey for young performers.

originally produced and presented at La Boite Theatre Company with support from The Australia Council for the Arts, Arts Queensland, The Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts Fresh Ground Program and PowerArts.
