After asking their fans on social media which story they'd most like to see turned into an irreverent play, Wellington's A Slightly Isolated Dog company chose the Trojan War from the dozens of suggestions. Once they delved deeper into the story of Paris, Helen and the fall of Troy, they discovered parallels with our current chaotic times. The Trojan War is the third in a series of reinterpreted classics - after Don Juan and Jekyll & Hyde - that were performed around the country, as well as Australia and Edinburgh. Director Leo Gene Peters first explains to Lynn Freeman the unorthodox play selection process. The Trojan War premieres at BATS Theatre in Wellington on Tuesday, before heading to Auckland's Basement Theatre from August the 23rd.
