Has anything truly changed since the Trojan War? Find out for yourself as this ancient epic roars back to life with contemporary wisdom and classic truths. AN ILIAD rises on the bare stage, as a sole storyteller and a lyric minstrel weave together their tale, capturing the grief and glory of the battle for Troy. AN ILIAD races through time, reliving humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence and destruction. The mythic warriors of Homer’s epic- Achilles and Hector- introduce students not only to the great tales of the ancient Greeks, but to the parallels of conflicts and the trials of the world today.
