Euripides Helen

Euripides Helen $12.99

Frank McGuinness

Published by Faber & Faber

Seven years have passed since the end of the Trojan War and Menelaus, King of Sparta and husband to Helen, is making his slow and painful way home

When his ship is wrecked on the coast of Egypt he stumbles upon what seems to be his wife lingering outside the royal palace

But if this is the real Helen, who was the beautiful woman stolen by Paris, for whom all Greece took up arms?

Did Troy fall for nothing?

Has it all been some god's idea of a joke?

Frank McGuinness's version of Euripides' Helen premiered at Shakespeare's Globe, London in August, 2009
