An Iliad - Homer in the Wild
Arts veteran Brad Learmonth produces a new, site-responsive production of An Iliad, the award-winning play by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare. Directed by James Blaszko, this modern retelling of Homer’s classic by a single actor unfolds outdoors around a campfire in the waning light of day. African percussion, cars, and a drone land visceral blows to the senses as the Trojan War comes to life in a stark reflection of our contemporary world. After a sold-out tour with stops to a veteran’s cemetery, a junkyard, and an apple orchard, An Iliad - Homer in the Wild is ready for continued presentation.
