Scene 1: Introduction of Troy
Narrator: (she will look around) Hello? (then the voice will echo) the echo will be the signal for the coming of the troops Narrator: (when the armies had already come) What the ?! STOP! * Everyone will look at her bewitched by her presence.

* She will come forward Excuse me! May I ask you something huh? Did you know what the reasons why war existed? ( but the man will not reply to her) Narrator: you didn’t know? Perhaps, these armies were just trained to be the one of the ingredients in war, and, by the way, in the late Bronze Age, throughout time, man has waged war. Some for power, some for glory , some for honor and some for love … war has also noble reasons other than greed and foolish pride. And were here to present some highlights of Iliad, one of the greatest epic story, written by homer. Scene 2 : Helen and Paris

Helen: ( she will stop brushing her hair in front of the mirror when she see Paris) Paris …. Paris: (he will continue to stare at her) You’re still beautiful and fairer Helen ( he will come at Helen’s side) Helen: (she will look at Paris reflection in the mirror) why are you here Paris? Paris: (he will whisper words into her ears. That’s not the question I want to hear from you. -Helen will knit her brows, curious of what Paris had said.

Paris: Oh Helen, am I going to be a slave of your love? I am bewitched and captured by your bound beauty and grace. Come with Me Helen and I’ll give you paradise. -Helen will turn to him and look him to his eyes.

Helen: (she will hug him). Will you? (then turn her back) How can you be so brave when you know my heart was already taken by a king? How can you act that way when you know your life will be sentenced? And how come you love me when we had just met several meetings? Paris: (come forward to her) Are you afraid Helen? Are you afraid to decide what your heart cries? The moment I laid my eyes upon you, I know that my heart wasn’t wrong to love you. Helen: I’m not afraid of the consequences we may face. It’s just that… No! (she shake her head) I’ll come with you, Paris.

Scene 3: Agamemnon and Menelaus
Narrator: The king was in furious when one of his servant had report him that Helen was being abducted by the young prince of Troy, Paris. Agamemnon: What a bad wind had brought you here? ( he will notice Menelaus) You look so pale, what happen? Menelaus: (he will be in silence for a while then he turn his back to Agamemnon) I want her back (he’ll whisper). I want her back Agamemnon! I want to be the one to give her soul to Hades. He slandered my reputation and cause me to much worries. I am the king and she’ll receive punishment. I will curse to her. Agamemnon: You mean Helen? your most beautiful and fairiest wife? But I thought you want to have a peace over Troy? Menelaus: That was a mistake! I should’ve listen to you!

Agamemnon: Don’t worry my brother (he will put Menelaus back) Let’s see what can I do for you. -Menelaus will leave Agamemnon with a relief on his face.
Agamemnon: What if… ( thinking deep) I will unite all massive tribes in Greece to steal Helen back from Troy. But (flashing a grin on his face) But the real purpose of this… I want to conquer troy to wise control the Aegean thus ensuring my supremacy to my vast empire (evil laugh).

Scene 4

Narrator: Agamemnon talked to Odysseus to encourage Achilles to lead the war over the Trojans.
Odysseus: Achilles … You are a great warrior and I know you knew that no one has suppressed you that idea. And the king needs your help , he wants you to lead the battle. Achilles: I’m not a soldier of my country nor no one owns me. I’m not fighting anyone nor for my king or my land. I am a soldier. -Thetis appear at Achilles side.
