Willamette University in #SalemOR Theatre Presents “HELEN”

helen_slider

 

February 19 – 28, 2015

In this fresh take on Euripides’ tragicomedy, Helen never went to Troy but spent the war fought in her name in an Egyptian hotel room waiting for her husband Menelaus to come find her and take her home. In her odd exile, Helen receives visits from Io, a mythical figure who was once turned into a cow, and the goddess Athena, who informs her of the devastation that Helen’s empty image has wrought upon the world. Bewildered by her strange escape from her own story, even Menelaus’ final arrival cannot save Helen from the legend that has grown far larger than the woman who inspired it.
