About An Iliad

"An Iliad" unfurls the final weeks of a legendary, decade-long siege where Greek legends mercilessly battled over the fall of Troy. This Obie Award–winning adaptation of Homer’s epic poem places one man on a bare stage with a simple question to ask: Has anything really changed since the Trojan War? Directed by Lisa Peterson and starring Tony Award–winning actor Denis O’Hare ("American Horror Story," "True Blood," "Dallas Buyers Club" and "This Is Us"), "An Iliad" in a sweeping account of humanity’s unshakable attraction to violence.

This encore performance brings "An Iliad" back to Boston after six years, giving audiences a chance to rediscover an astonishing, award-winning play. Described as wrenching, visceral, breathtaking, and formidably powerful by critics, it’s an experience not to be missed.
