About this show

The Age of Iron is an epic retelling of the Trojan War, drawn from the works of two of the most dynamic Elizabethan playwrights, which takes us from the rape of Helen to the sack of Troy. At the center is Shakespeare's majestic Troilus & Cressida, a play that, in the wake of our own turbulent 20th century, has emerged as Shakespeare's most modern masterpiece. This remarkable work is bookended by Thomas Heywood's Iron Age, expanding the play's reach to encompass the full breadth of the Trojan War. Taken together, these two authors create a grand Elizabethan Iliad that brings Homer's long lost world vividly to life. The Age of Iron is adapted and directed by Brian Kulick.
