By Denis O’Hare and Lisa Peterson
Based on Homer’s The Iliad, translated by Robert Fagles
Directed by Lisa Peterson
An Iliad conjures the passion and rage of the gods and goddesses, and the mythic warriors in Homer’s sweeping epic, told through an original and immediate voice. A storyteller takes you to the front lines of every war in history, reliving humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War? - the 10-year siege of Troy, the Greeks and Trojans locked in a brutal combat, the heroic and final battle between Achilles and Hector.
