The work centers on Yossarian (to be played by Lavelle), a bombardier on a B-25, based on a small island off the coast of Italy in 1944. He starts to question the futile and ridiculous administration of his air base and seeks a way to preserve his life when the whole world around him seems to be going mad.
In the spring, Aquila will present the entirety of Homer's Iliad as a trilogy, March 27-April 26. The production is inspired by the cover of Stanley Lombardo's translation, which is a photograph of the D-day landings, entitled, "Into the Jaws of Death." A disparate group of soldiers and refugees take refuge from a savage war and find solace and humanity in Homer's epic tale.For more information, visit www.aquilatheatre.com.
