About this show

"Rage--Goddess, sing the rage of Achilles." Homer's Iliad, a ten-year account of the 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. Individual tickets go on sale July 15. Court Theatre cannot accommodate children under the age of 5, and our productions are not generally of interest to children under 8 years of age.
