An Iliad

by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare

Based on Homer’s The Iliad, translated by Robert Fagles

“… the most powerful piece of theater I have seen in my life….

It was one woman, but a show so immense, so powerful, there almost wasn’t room for her inside that nearly bare black-box theater….”
         –Winona Post

“It is, at times, enthralling, engaging, shocking, tragic, hilarious and profound, and is an important message for us to hear today as talk of war escalates among our politicians and news media.”
 – Jim Gurley in the La Crosse Tribune
