Troy Boy

Troy BoyT1402921270
Kit Hesketh Harvey's translation of Offenbach's La Belle Helene. The action has been transported to suburban England where the beautiful Helen's well and truly fed up with her very boring husband. So a trip to the local Greek restaurant and an encounter with the handsome waiter from Troy can only lead to trouble! In the blink of an eye they find themselves in Faliraki, and the rest, as they say, is history!
Author Kit Hesketh Harvey (after Offenbach's La Belle Helene)
