THE MAN WHO FOUND TROY
Cast as Sophia Schliemann and Helen of Troy in full-length play by Joseph Krawczyk, directed by Eddie Lew. With Johnny Blaze Leavitt as Heinrich Schliemann and Stephen Goodin as Frank Calvert.
Based on a true story, Henry Schliemann, a wealthy entrepreneur, embarks on a rocky, twenty-year, epic journey to discover the ancient city of Troy. He uses Homer’s Iliad as his guide and inspiration. But first, he marries Sophia Engastromenos, a Greek girl with a love for Homer. In his eyes, she is his Helen of Troy as he educates her to become an elite member of Parisian society. Their age difference, he forty seven and she seventeen, is a gulf he cannot bridge. Nevertheless, she becomes an equal partner. Overcoming skeptics, cynics, and scholars of ancient antiquities, he pours all his efforts and accumulated wealth into the quest. With the assistance of his undervalued partner, Frank Calvert knows the likely spot and points Schliemann on the right path. Schliemann, a Trump-like showman, and Calvert, an academic, clash throughout their involvement together on the best means to uncover the ancient city. Throughout their quest, significant figures from The Iliad appear – Achilles, Hector, Menelaus, King Priam and Helen herself – as ghosts that haunt and guide the three main characters as they pursue their search for the walls of Troy.
The director states:
The play is about Heinrich Schliemann and his obsession with finding
Homer’s Troy of the Illiad, at the time (1870s) thought to be a
fictitious city. His sometimes unethical and controversial methods
earned him the scorn of archeologists, and his partner Frank Calvert.
The story also deals with Heinrich’s marriage to a woman twenty years
his junior. The play asks the question, is he a hero or, as many
people thought, a scoundrel?
