Shakespeare's Globe Theatre on Bankside has had its fair fill of tension, action and thrills over the years, and the latest production to be performed there, The Last Days Of Troy, is right on trend with the historic venue's reputation for high-drama.

This gripping adaptation by Simon Armitage re-tells the classic legend of the fall of Troy, with the bloody war coming to its brutal conclusion. The city is under siege as Greece fights to win back Helen, the abducted queen said to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The play, which was critically-acclaimed during its run in Manchester before moving the Globe, shows the effects of war on both the mortals on Earth and the Gods of Olympus.

The audience may recognise supermodel Lily Cole treading the boards in her role as Helen of Troy, but celebrity spotter or not, we're giving two lucky winners the chance to experience the drama and win a pair of top-price tickets to see The Last Days Of Troy.
