Andromache is a very anomalous text in Euripidal production: there is no protagonist, no god appears, as well as no "tragic hero"; the world, emptied of exceptional presences, seems to harbor only men unable to decide their own destiny. Hopes alternate with tragic disillusionments, in a mechanical dance, so macabre and ruthless that it seems comical.

Taking advantage of the absence from Neoptolemus's house, on his way to the temple of Apollo, a furious fight arises among his family members: his young wife Hermione is jealous of the slave Andromache, with whom Neoptolemus has begot a son, and wants to each cost you to kill her and the baby. The father Menelaus, who has come expressly from Sparta, is determined to help his daughter in her project of revenge, as well as Peleus - father of Achilles and grandfather of Neoptolemus - is determined to stop her. Andromache finds refuge at the altar of Tethys, and there, clinging to the statue of the Goddess, takes time waiting for the return of her lover.
Neoptolemus - the great absentee - is center and cause of the various clashes that will animate the story: each character makes decisive choices for his life, convinced that on his return the lord will do justice. But in the end a messenger tells a horrible fact: Neoptolemus died immediately after he left, even before any dispute and discussion began.
