An Iliad

July 14, 2021 - August 6, 2021 Under the Tent at Walker Farm Back to Shows & Events
An Iliad


By Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare
Based on Homer's The Iliad, translated by Robert Fagles

The eternal, enchanting power of storytelling comes to life in this gripping adaptation of Homer’s classic. A solitary storyteller on a bare stage throws us right into the midst of conflict where heroes and countries clash in a quest for power and glory. In this vibrant retelling, the Trojan War and the present day are set side by side as the excitement of an ancient tale is catapulted into an intimate, urgent, and spellbinding story for today.
