Helen meets a strange man
Paris is a stranger in his own family
Neither is prepared for the future that is coming
When Theseus arrives in Sparta, Helen finds herself amused by his attention - a welcome distraction from the lonely world she inhabits with her younger sister Cly and cousin Penelope. As his interest grows, Helen must fight to regain control of her world.
Paris has returned to Troy after his banishment as a baby. Struggling to adapt and determined not to conform to the control he sees around him, Paris must learn the rules of this new world surrounded by a family he has nothing in common with.
Set in the two contrasting worlds of 'Troy' and 'Sparta', PROPHESY explores the moment Paris and Helen receive the unexpected prophecies that will determine their future and bring about the complete destruction of their world. Can knowledge of our future prove self-fulfilling, and in a battle of fate and freewill, is it ever truly possible to change?
Radically reimagining characters from the Greek Myths in settings not unlike modern Britain, PROPHESY investigates the notion of self-identity: the roles we take on, the expectations we have and the choices we make.
Devised by the ensemble, PROPHESY has been developed through improvisation and physical theatre and will run in the gallery space at Blackall Studios. BAZ Productions has built a reputation for powerful and unique work in non-theatrical spaces, established in their award nominated Macbeth in the Crypt of St. Andrew, Holborn in 2011.
PROPHESY opens on February 5th and runs until March 2nd. Tuesday - Saturdays @ 7.30pm and 3pm Saturday matinees.
Come and enjoy a night of site specific theatre and a drink in our private bar underneath the venue. Entrance via Blackall Street.
