Read Synopsis

Visionary creators Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare have crafted a sprawling yarn based on Homer’s epic poem. An Iliad┬áspins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through an original and immediate voice. Making its New York premier, Tony Award-winning actors Denis O’Hare (Assassins, Take Me Out) and Stephen Spinella (Angels in America) will alternate as performers in this sweeping account of humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War?
