An Iliad

October 20, 2018 - November 4, 2018
  • This event has passed.

Passed down from the campfires of Ancient Greece comes a fresh retelling of Homer’s soaring epic. Featuring a virtuosic one-man performance, one embattled storyteller grapples with The Iliad’s timeless tale of the horrors and heroism of war. With intimacy and immediacy, this strikingly theatrical experience will shine a light on how Homer’s poem rings true today.

Starring Broadway veteran Jeffrey Binder (The Lion King, Mary Poppins), An Iliad is a visceral 95-minute retelling of Homer’s The Iliad. Originally developed by actor Denis O’Hare and playwright Lisa Peterson, this compact adaptation tells the story of Achilles, Hector, and all the players of the Trojan War; and it reminds how one of history’s most epic stories is still relevant 2000 years later.
