In this new musical, inspired by Euripides’ Helen, the world’s greatest beauty has been hidden away by the gods in Egypt, while the notoriously bloody war is fought in her name. Meanwhile, the gods have crafted a phantom duplicate of Helen and shipped her off to Troy with the Trojan Prince. As Troy falls, Helen remains faithfully in Egypt, barely avoiding the affections of a narcissistic king. When a prophecy reveals that Helen’s husband will be shipwrecked in Egypt, Helen must finally take her life back into her own hands.
