HBAF 2022 - The Trojan War

Following the success of Don Juan and Jekyll & Hyde, A Slightly Isolated Dog brings you the third instalment in the trilogy of very sexy works: The Trojan War!

Employing a cast of faux-French performers, this is a hilarious, joyful, interactive celebration combining theatrical magic, wicked pop songs and explosive wit to create a delightful romp through a twisted classic tale.

When Paris is born, it is prophesied that he will bring the destruction of the city. To avoid this fate he is sent away to be sacrificed. But this starts a series of events that will inevitably lead to the destiny his parents were so desperately trying to avoid.

The Trojan War tells the story of the tragic fall of Troy. It’s a raucous celebration of our ridiculous lives, using this classic tale of gods and heroes to playfully explore questions around the current chaos of our times.

“An absolute tour de force of modern theatre practice... no matter how dark you feel before you come, that darkness will disappear during this blackest and sexiest of comedies.” - Theatreview

★★★★★ “Relentless hilarity, fun and frolics” - The List
