AN ILIAD

27 September - 27 October, 2024
Director: David Minton

A lone Poet wearily enters with a suitcase. They’ve endured an eon of traveling, reciting an age-old epic tale. AN ILIAD is a brilliant, spellbinding, modern retelling of Homer’s classic, a play about war and rage, that resonates all-too-vividly today. As they talk, we listen rapt, captivated by this timeless story, filled with dark humor, cruelty and pathos, and listen to songs of heroism, loyalty and love.
