Dr. Melissa Friesen, professor of communication and theatre, will direct the play, which is being staged at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 1-3 and 2:30 p.m., Nov. 4 in Ramseyer Auditorium in College Hall. Reserved tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for senior citizens (65 and over) and non-Bluffton students.

“Helen” centers on the story of Helen of Troy, the most beautiful woman in the world – having been whisked away by the gods to a three-star Egyptian hotel for the duration of the war. This comic modern adaptation of Euripides' play examines our obsession with celebrity, beauty and the myths that eclipse our realities.
