An Illiad

Adapted from Homer
By Lisa Peterson and Dennis O’Hare
Translation by Robert Faqles
Directed by Eric Ting
Stage II
January 8 – February 9, 2014

Swords and armor clash as the armies of this classic come thundering back to life in this compelling new take. A grizzled storyteller walks onto a bare stage wearing an old coat and carrying a battered suitcase. She begins to tell an ancient story, one she can’t stop telling, full of bravery, heroism, friendship, and the astonishing costs of war. As this epic races through time, the bonds of friendship and family, the broken oaths and broken hearts become all the more breathtakingly relevant today.
