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.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tech. Around you, a company of 14 is engaged in the very peculiar — and peculiarly impossible — task of making a new play. You’ll have a seat next to the sound designer as he mixes cues. You’ll eavesdrop on backstage gossip as it happens over headset. You’ll watch the director struggle to contain the uncontainable.

Anne Washburn took notes during her tech rehearsals over the years. 10 out of 12 is a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us.

Showtimes:
Thursday, November 21, 8:00 pm
Friday, November 22, 8:00 pm
Saturday, November 23, 2:00 and 8:00 pm
