An Iliad
"Every time I sing this song, I hope it's the last time" says the poet, as he sings of the great siege of Troy, of shield clashing against shield, of wrath and fury, honor and glory, fate and fortune But this poet is no mere traveler from an antique land: he has come to St. Louis to speak to us, to enchant us, move us, and urge us to peer  into the bronze gleam of an ancient warand dare to recognize ourselves.
An Iliad premiered in 2010 and has been lauded by critics across the country, including The New York Times this spring: "Mr. O'Hare and Ms. Peterson have telescoped the mighty expanses of Homer's great poem into an evening that scales the conflict of the Trojan War down to an intimate solo show illuminating both the heroism and the horror of warfare."
Jerry Vogel returns to Upstream to play the poet, accompanied by longtime Upstream composer and musician Farshid Soltanshahi. Directed by Patrick Siler, with sets by Patrick Huber, costumes by Katie Donovan, lighting by Joseph Clapper and props by Claudia Mink Horn.
