ATA Presents: The Man Who Found Troy

April 18 @ 7:00 pm - April 29 @ 9:00 pm



The Man Who Found Troy by award-winning playwright Joseph Krawczyk is about Heinrich Schliemann, a millionaire who, in 1868, commences to excavate the fabled city of Troy. He is accompanied by his bride, Sophia, a very beautiful 17-year-old Greek girl who consents to wed the very wealthy 47-year-old Heinrich to rescue her impoverished family. She makes a promise to Heinrich that she will, in time, “learn to love him”. That pending “love’ is the thread that binds together the fascinating story about a ruthless millionaire determined to be “The Man Who Found Troy” and that of his child bride. In this 3-actor play, you will also meet some legendary characters from “The Iliad”: Helen, Menelaus, Achilles, Priam, and Hector. These roles will also be played by the same actors who portray Sophia, Heinrich and Frank Calvert, the hapless partner of Heinrich Schliemann.
