Returning from the Trojan War, Menelaus meets a mysterious woman who claims to be his wife. But is she the real Helen of Troy or has Menelaus been tricked by war-hungry gods? Read More >

Returning from the Trojan War, Greek hero Menelaus is shipwrecked and meets a mysterious, beautiful woman who claims to be his wife, Helen, captured by the Trojans, seduced by Paris, and the reason why he and the other Greek chiefs have waged their bloody war against the city of Troy.

But is this seductress the real Helen of Troy or has Menelaus been tricked by war-hungry gods? Could this islander be another woman altogether: the real and entirely innocent Helen? Love unites them and they are forced to concoct an ingenious series of schemes in order to escape from a ruthless and lustful king who is also hoping to make the mysterious woman his wife.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
