An Iliad is a modern-day retelling of Homer’s classic. Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this theatrical experience. The lone figure on stage is a storyteller — possibly Homer, possibly one of the many bards who followed in Homer’s footsteps. She is fated to tell this story throughout history.
