Every great neighborhood has one and in South Troy it’s the Trojan ­­Horse Tavern. Helen Murphy is struggling to keep the doors open. She and her menagerie of quirky regulars are surviving day to day when Helen’s old flame shows up with a hidden agenda. For the first time in decades, Helen has options.




“Helen of Troy” is a full length play that has been developed through the PlayMakers Writer’s Work Group, produced by “What If? Theatre Company and hosted by the Arts Center of the Capital Region.

There will be a chaired discussion following the reading.

We welcome you to attend whether you are a theater professional or just interested in Theatre.
