An Iliad: Conor Bagley's Homer Update
"Rage -- Goddess, sing the rage of Peleus' son Achilles." An Iliad is a modern retelling of Homer's classic about the horrors and glories of the Trojan War. While epic in scope, it tells the deeply personal story of Achilles and Hector; of families, lovers, and inseparable friends; and the tragic, yet enthralling, nature of war. But most of all, it is about rage: the way it warps us, the lengths we go to satiate it, and our struggle to control it. Both DC-area natives, Broadway producer Conor Bagley (Once on This Island) directs classically trained Iason Togias (Yale, RADA) in their homecoming production as they grapple with the greatest war story ever told. With the lone Poet performing the story to the tune of a live musician, experience The Iliad as Homer intended. An Iliad, written by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare and based on Homer's The Iliad, was translated by Robert Fagles and can be seen at Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington DC.
