What is your identity if your nation has been destroyed? Fleeing a war-torn Troy, Aeneas is a refugee seeking new roots and a new identity in Europe.

Queen Dido is ready to help him when meddling Gods intervene and turn help into an all-consuming love.

Do they follow their hearts or fulfil their political destinies?

Marlowe’s first play is the rarely told story of the intensity of human passion and a woman of strength and brilliance who refused to be silenced.
