Undermain Theatre presents An Iliad
In the spirit of celebration of 35 years of cutting edge performance, Undermain establishes its repertory series to honor the gems of its production history with a reboot of An Iliad, reviving the landmark production from 2012 starring Bruce DuBose and Paul Semrad and directed by Undermain Artistic Director Katherine Owens.
An Iliad is a modern-day retelling of Homer's classic. Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this captivating theatrical experience. The setting is simple: the empty theater. The time is now: the present moment. The lone figure onstage is a storyteller, possibly Homer, possibly one of the many bards who followed in his footsteps. He is fated to tell this story throughout history.
