ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents An Iliad. Visionary theatre artists Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare have crafted a sprawling yarn based on Homer's epic poem in their OBIE-winning collaboration that begs the question: Has anything really changed since the Trojan War? An Iliad spins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through the eyes of a single narrator, whose enigmatic experience of the war reverberates with today's headlines. Peterson's acclaimed, cutting edge work as a theatre director here combines with O'Hare's inimitable range as an actor (Tony-winner for Take Me Out, television's "True Blood"), to create a tour de force performance of this sweeping account of humanity's unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos.
