This is a condensed version of the Iliad, told by an unidentified narrator who is not exactly Homer, but might be a guy who was at the siege of Troy, and somehow wound up telling you about it, and to some extent, acting it out. If you are familiar with the Iliad, you will enjoy the colloquial take on it. If you are not familiar with it, I think you will enjoy it as a first exposure to the Iliad. It's a one-man show, well acted. It's in a single act, lasting about 90 minutes. It has a few gory descriptions of killing.
