The play will be performed Off Broadway at The First Floor Theater at 74 East 4th Street from September 11th to September 23rd, 2012

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.

HELEN OF TROY

''Poor Greeks and Trojans slain for me.
I am a creature made of mist and air.
All for a trick of Hera's you have died. ''

Helen was written at 412 B.C. and was presented to the audience for
the first time at the same period just after the ending of the
Sicilian expedition with the defeat of the Athenian ship and the
disappointment of the Athenians. This exact outcry of the Athenian
population is expressed by Aggelos in Helen when he learns that so
many years they fought uselessly around an idol. Euripides condemns
war and he considers that it only brings destructions. The war is a
madness, a fallacy that has pitiful results. His faith for peace and
his repulsion for war lead him to write this tragedy that is a cry of
the heart of a pacifist.

KADDISH TO THE LIFE NOT LIVED

KADDISH TO THE LIFE NOT LIVED (I DID NOT LIVE)

A redemptive monologue, of a young Jewish woman, who was hung at Auschwitz-Birgenaou; a monologue dedicated to the children of Jews who will never be born!

-The Jewish Holocaust during WWII in the Nazi extermination camps and the attempted demise of a nation/ race, (the name of) the Nazi ideology for humans and subhumans, should not be regarded as an isolated event, which deals only with conditions that prevailed in Europe at that time.
