Five flirtatious “French” performers meet you at the door. They bring you in, they show you to your seat, they flirt with you. Maybe they fall a little bit in love with you. Then they tell a story – with you.

Like a wild dress-up party, The Trojan War tells the story of the tragic fall of Troy through theatrical magic, twisted pop songs and explosive wit. The most charming performers you can hope to meet play a revolving repertoire of outrageous characters.

Created and performed by A Slightly Isolated Dog, this New Zealand theatre company delivers a frantic and hilarious mash-up in the style of Monty Python meets The Mighty Boosh. Leave your inhibitions at the door and join us to explore hilarious parallels between war-torn ancient Greece and the chaos, confusion and absurdity of the present day.

These gifted performers and improvisers have created something explosive and remarkable here.
