"Rage--Goddess, sing the rage of Achilles." Homer's Iliad, an account of the ten-year Trojan War, remains one of Western literature's most enduring legacies. In their one-man adaptation An Iliad, Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare (TV's True Blood) return Homer's epic poem to the voice of the lone poet as he recounts a story of human loss and folly that resonates across three millennia of war and bloodshed. Directed by Artistic Director Charles Newell, An Iliad illuminates an ancient classic by taking a harrowing look at the human cost of war.
This modern, one-man retelling of Homer's Iliad features Timothy Edward Kane, whose Court Theatre credits include The Illusion, Titus Andronicus, The Wild Duck, Uncle Vanya, The Romance Cycle: Cymbeline & Pericles, and Hamlet, all under the direction of Artistic Director Charles Newell.
