Translated by Robert Fagles and adapted by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare
Directed by Jonathan Fox
Starring John Tufts with live music by Jonathan Flaksman 


ETC is offering FREE access to teachers and students to view a LIVE BROADCAST of An Iliad. This is NOT a Zoom performance. The actor will be performing on the stage at the New Vic and broadcast live. Immediately following the performance there will be a 20-minute Q&A with the actor and director.


FRIDAY APRIL 16 at 10:30 AM (Running Time: 90-minutes)

Crafted around the stories of Achilles and Hector, in language that is by turns poetic and conversational, An Iliad brilliantly refreshes Homer’s classic epic poem. What emerges is a powerful and lively piece of theatrical storytelling the use of a single actor and musician that vividly drives home the timelessness of mankind’s compulsion toward violence. The production, directed by ETC’s artistic director Jonathan Fox, will take place on the stage of ETC’s theatrical home, The New Vic.  With minimal stage design but with creative videography.
