The Helen Project, by Kristen M. Scatton

The world knows the story of Helen of Troy — or it thinks it does, anyway. The most beautiful woman in history, known as either a fallen woman whose adultery started a decade-long war or a helpless victim in need of rescuing, Helen has yet to tell her side of the story. The Helen Project reimagines classical stories like “The Trojan Women” and “The Iliad” through Helen’s eyes, as she invites audiences to accompany her on her journey from fame to infamy, and discover the woman behind the face that launched a thousand ships.

The Helen Project is a brand-new, full-length one-act play that mixes elements of classical Greek drama (use of a chorus, simple staging) with modern storytelling. It's an ensemble-based piece; the actor playing Helen in each scene changes, to represent the many forms that beauty can take, and show the many facets of this complex woman who's been portrayed as largely one-dimensional throughout history.
