Let’s Talk About An Iliad!
An Iliad is returns to ArtsEmerson after six years and we are thrilled to bring this show back to Boston. We’d love to know your thoughts and open up a dialogue about An Iliad. Below, we have some prompts for you to get the conversation started. Feel free to leave a comment on this blog post, or reach out on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. As always, we’ll be collecting reviews and other audience testimonials for you to refer to.
- How do we memorialize war in our society?
- Is violence inevitable?
- Were you to travel the earth sharing a myth – which would it be?
“This is no ordinary dramatic experience. It is a magic carpet ride into the deepest power and charm that theater can offer.” – The Theater Mirror
What an amazing tour de force performance by Denis O’Hare, and the play by O’Hare and Lisa Peterson is moving, provocative, depressing and hopeful all at the same time. This play joins the ranks of anti-war drama dating back to Euripedes.
The Iliad is one of my top beloved stories since 4th grade- and Mr O’Hare & his muse and translator made a magnificent
work of this story. One of the highlights of this year’s out
for the evening times. A really exceptional telling of one of the best stories of the stories of the world. So very glad I attended.
