An Iliad unfurls the final weeks of a legendary, decade-long siege where Greek legends mercilessly battled over the fall of Troy. This Obie Award–winning adaptation of Homer’s epic poem places one man on a bare stage with a simple question to ask: Has anything really changed since the Trojan War? Directed by Lisa Peterson and starring Tony Award–winning actor Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story, True Blood, Dallas Buyers Club and This Is Us), An Iliad in a sweeping account of humanity’s unshakable attraction to violence.
This encore performance brings An Iliad back to Boston after six years, giving audiences a chance to discover an astonishing, award-winning play the Boston Globe called “nothing short of mesmerizing.” Described as wrenching, visceral, breathtaking, and formidably powerful by critics, it’s an experience not to be missed.
