An ancient tale comes roaring back to life in a compelling new telling filled with contemporary wit and wisdom. The clash of swords and shields, the broken hearts and broken oaths, the bonds of friendship and family--An Iliad arises on a bare stage, told by a lone poet who's seen too much. From Obie Award-winner playwright and director Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare comes this stunning show that captures the grief and glory of the battle for Troy. Homer removes his armor on behalf of all humanity and reveals the truth within each of us. A hawk, a doveAn Iliad races through time to become breathtakingly relevant today.
"Explosive, altogether breathtakingBrilliantly meshes past and present calamity, with touches of the most caustic dark humor suddenly shifting into unimaginable pathos." (Chicago Sun-Times)
