zounds! is a comedy about the Greek gods during the Trojan War, set in the present. In the ninth year, when Aphrodite is injured in battle, Zeus puts the gods under house arrest on Mount Olympus. If the Greeks and Trojans think the war is hard, it's because they've never been locked in with their whole family. Featuring 13 gods, Helen of Troy and a Greek chorus, zounds! is a political comedy about power, love and (literal) sacrifices. Floor Five Theatre Company premiered zounds! with their ensemble of 25 international artists in New York in 2018.
