About the play:
The timeless power of storytelling brings to life this gripping adaptation of Homer’s classic. A lone poet on an open stage throws us right into the midst of conflict where heroes and countries clash in a quest for power and glory. In this vibrant retelling, the Trojan War and present-day are set side by side as ancient history is catapulted into an intense, intimate, and at times funny, story for today.
