An Iliad is pure theatre: shocking, glorious, primal and deeply satisfying. TIME OUT NEW YORK

A tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles, told by a single narrator whose enigmatic stories reverberate with today’s headlines.

Homer’s epic of war at the gates of Troy is thrillingly transformed in the natural scenic beauty of the Sunken Gardens, as Tony Award winner Denis O’Hare brings this classic tale into the modern day with a tour de force performance. 

Over 90 profoundly entertaining minutes, O’Hare is our guide for one of history’s greatest adventures, exploring humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos.
