Paris, adjudicating at a beauty contest, awards first prize to Venus; in beautiful woman in the world - Helen of Sparta. When Paris comes to claim his prize, Helen welcomes the situation as her 'destiny.' Only on obstacle remains - her husband, King Menelaus.

The Flame is centred on the conflict between two women: one intelligent, brilliant, apparently hard, driven by a terrible malice; the other apparently safe in her position with husband and child, yet tormented by the premature death of a child. The action is concerned with the relationship between the two, and the power of evil generated in each by the other.
