Playwright Ellen McLaughlin Producer Theatre of Yugen  [Website] Description A modern adaptation of Euripides’ classic tragic-comedy of Helen of Troy. This epic explores beauty, women, gender, societal expectations, iconography, storytelling, abduction, war, and death.

The gods have replaced Helen with a phantom and whisked the real woman away to an Egyptian hotel room to await her judgement or rescue. After seventeen years of solitude, endless routine, and one serious fly infestation, company arrives. Will their stories save her? Can the woman transcend the icon?
