SUMMARY

Helen, the face that launched a thousand ships, never went to Troy - the woman Paris kidnapped was a phantom, and the Trojan War just a terrible mistake. The real Helen now sits in Egypt waiting for her husband Menelaus to carry her home so that they can live happily ever after. This unique production makes use of Commedia Dell'Arte and mask-work to create a hilarious and moving parody of the thing that Euripides most loathed: war and the terrible suffering that it brings.
