“Pure theatre. Shocking, glorious, primal, and deeply satisfying… fills the eye with astounding sights — almost more than our hearts can bear.”

“The strength of AN ILIAD resides in the combination of a naturally exciting narrative and the engaged, virtuosic performance of…Mr. O’Hare…a supple, gifted and engaging performer.”
- The New York Times
“A mesmerizing play…a wrenching theatrical experience”
- SF Gate
“The show is a sweeping, visceral theatrical event that not only commands attention from start to finish, but can prove to be a touching ode to the tradition of storytelling and an excursion into the magic of simple stagecraft.”
- TheaterMania
“Listening to An Iliad in a manner that could be breathtakingly close to the way its first audiences heard and saw it is a treat too good to miss.”
- The Huffington Post
“A starkly powerful experience that leaves you with not just a sense of the horror and absurdity of war, but also — and this part makes the heart sink — its inevitability.”
“Theatrical storytelling at its most vital.”
- The Boston Globe
