Timothy Edward Kane reprises his thrilling one-man performance of Homer's Iliad, an epic story of gods, heroes and the Trojan War. Created by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare (TV's True Blood), An Iliad celebrates the art of storytelling and illustrates the harrowing cost of war. Kane plays the Poet, who speaks directly to the audience, bringing to life the struggle between Achilles and Hector over the beautiful Helen, and the resulting battle and fall of Troy. Come see why this play was dubbed "a masterpiece" by the Chicago Tribune. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Court Theatre
Since the Court's founding in 1955 at the University of Chicago, its work has been inspired by the belief that classic theatre illuminates the stories and themes that are timely and timeless. Each one of the theatre company's provocative productions has guided its artists and audiences on an exploration into the vast human consciousness, and has created a timeline that connects the present to the past. Theatre, and classic theatre in particular, gives us insight into the past, understanding of our present, and directs us toward our future.
