An Iliad

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at The Stage (see times)
San Jose Stage Company presents the captivating epic tale, An Iliad, directed by Kenneth Kelleher and adapted by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare. Based on Homer's The Iliad and translated by Robert Fagles, An Iliad is a breathtaking and relevant, modern retelling of a timeless classic which unleashes the thrilling tales of the Trojan War and delves into the psychology of passion and rage, ancient and modern. In this tour-de-force, one actor plays the Greek classic's famous characters Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, and 'the face that launched a thousand ships' Helen of Troy. From Mt. Olympus Gods such as Apollo, Athena and Hermes come and go.
