An Iliad is a one-man adaptation of Homer’s classic tale. The play is adapted by Denis O’Hare and Lisa Peterson. It is based on a translation by Robert Fagles and directed by Lisa Peterson.

The Playhouse said: 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?
