Description

Written by Jon Lipsky

Directed by Allyn Burrows

This stunning retelling of the Iliad by local playwright Jon Lipsky suggests that the years spent by Greek soldiers on the beachheads of Asia Minor have haunting similarities to the years spent by American soldiers on the beachheads of Vietnam, in the mountains of Afghanistan, and in the desert of Iraq. The lives of the women of Saigon or Baghdad may not be so different from the lives of the “barbarian” women kidnapped onto the plains of Troy. Living in Exile is a compelling war story, but more importantly a story of compassion and the human heart.
