HELEN OF TROY

Genre:

After mounting two successful off-Broadway runs of Aeschylus’s Oresteia (2010) and Euripides’s Iphigenia in Tauris (2011), Leonidas Loizides’s acting troupe will return in the Fall of 2012 to present Euripides’s Helen. Produced and directed by the award-wining Leonidas Loizidis, Helen features an outstanding performance by acclaimed actress Eftychia Loizidi and a new adaptation of the play into modern English poetry by Louis Markos, English and Honors Professor and Scholar in Residence at Houston Baptist University.


On Sunday, September 16 and 23 at 7pm, Loizidis will also present “Kaddish to a Life not Lived.” In this moving monologue, written by Michalis Kokkinaris, translated by Despines Kontaxis, and performed by Eftychia Loizidi, a Jewish woman named Sarah shares her final thoughts before being killed at Auschwitz. In unforgettable words, she mourns for the life that she will never live with the man she loves, the children she will never hold in her arms, and the simple dreams she will never see fulfilled.
