Literature Professor Donald P. Gagnon, PhD set the play among Euripedes other works, before the curtain went up on this performance, noting that it was banned for a time some 2400 years after it was first produced, because it was considered too powerful for the situation then.
It took me a while to get used to the stage voices, but after a while I was immersed. It was tastefully done with a minimal set and some beautiful (haunting) singing.
The production of Helen of Troy was sponsored jointly by Western Connecticut State University and The Deno and Marie Macricostas Family Foundation.
A reception with delicious food, coffee and Baklava afforded an opportunity to chat about the play, with the actors and the sponsors immediately afterwards. A delightful event, entirely free to the public. Thank you. This low budget person says, Thank you very much.
