After a successful staging of "Much Ado About Nothing" at Carson Beach, they're hard at work on Charles Mee's "Trojan Women: A Love Story," a contemporary retelling of Euripides' classic. The play set in a post-war, gender-stratified society runs Feb. 21-March 9 at Sprout in Somerville, but to get ready for the big show they've invited actress Adrianne Krstansky and Brandeis professor Tom King to discuss the play. Krstansky, who's appeared in the film "The Company Men," was recently seen on Boston stages in "Imagining Madoff" and "Tribes." King is a gender studies scholar who also directed the troupe's debut production.
