AUDITIONS are happening now (ongoing) for this musical, odd, funny and happily-ending Greek play. For more information, head to www.msuhelen.org
“I never went to Troy…” said the famous Helen in Stesichorus’ (mostly lost) poem — she went to… Egypt!? Euripides took Stesichorus and Herodotus at their word, and so was born this unexpected and stereotype-crushing Greek tragicomedy, Helen.
HELEN, waiting patiently in Egypt while the Trojan War takes its course due to a phantom of her having been sent to Troy to replace her, finally receives word from the exiled and shipwrecked Greek soldier TEUCER that MENELAUS, her husband, never returned to Greece from Troy, and is presumed dead…. Translation of play by Diane Arnson Svarlien.
SAVE THE DATES! APRIL 20, 21, 25, 27, in the MSU Amphitheater adjacent to Kasser Theater
