An Iliad

  • New Village Arts 2787 State Street Carlsbad, CA 92008 United States (map)


An Iliad spins the familiar tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles told through the eyes of a single narrator, whose enigmatic experience of the war reverberates with today’s headlines. A solo actor creates a tour de force performance of this sweeping account of humanity’s unshakeable attraction to violence, destruction and chaos.
