A patriarchy-smashing new show for G(r)eek lovers
Produced and presented by Pinecone Performance Lab
A Cockpit Theatre Maker event
What if you could cast a spell and get your teenage heart’s desire? In her quest for eternal beauty, Amy accidentally conjures the spirit of Helen of Troy. Yes, that Helen of Troy, the most beautiful woman who ever lived.
Grab your scented candles and get ready for a magical makeover from teenage geek to gorgeous Greek. We’re armed with lipstick, high heels, pop tunes, and a stack of magazines - let’s go, girls!
With music, mythology, and 90s movie tropes, this patriarchy-smashing new show asks: what would you sacrifice to become beautiful? And what is it really like to be the face that launched a thousand ships?
