Long before it was a book, even before it was a poem, The Iliad was one heck of a story, a rollicking, raunchy and altogether enthralling tale that people couldn't get out of their heads. Now co-creators Lisa Peterson (Obie-winning director) and Denis O'Hare (Tony-winning actor) have recaptured the spirit of the early epic in An Iliad, a 90 minute one-man show. In this celebration of storytelling, Jackson Davis 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. Personal, funny, deeply relevant, this play has been dubbed a "masterpiece" by the Chicago Tribune. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: Margaret Wingrove Dance CompanyFounded in 1981, the critically-acclaimed Margaret Wingrove Dance Company remains San Jose's longest-standing modern dance company. Blending both modern and ballet techniques with high energy and physicality, the company's style is fluid enough to allow for bold experimentation in a wide range of repetoire of over 80 choreographic works.
The company is dedicated to the innovation and presentation of emotionally compelling and dynamically driven dance. It performs not only works of its founder and artistic director, Margaret Wingrove, but also showcases the works of emerging choreographers and noted guest artists. This mission to present young, promising dancers and choreographers has been very much a company mainstay since its founding.
