La Jolla Playhouse has announced the cast and creative team for its upcoming co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre of Denis O'Hare and Lisa Peterson's adaptation of An Iliad, running August 11-September 9. Lisa Peterson will direct.

Based on a translation by Robert Fagles, this new adaptation of Homer's epic is a riveting account of humanity's unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction, and chaos.

The cast includes Henry Woronicz as the Poet, with Brian Ellingsen as the Musician.

The design team will be comprised of Rachel Hauck (set design), Marina Draghici (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design), and Mark Bennett (sound design and original music).
