“Spellbinding…an age-old story that resonates with tragic meaning today.” -The New York Times
A modern-day retelling of Homer’s classic tale of gods and goddesses, undying love and endless battles, told through the eyes of a single narrator whose gripping monologue captures both the heroism and horror of war. Crafted around the stories of Achilles and Hector, this powerful piece vividly drives home the timelessness of mankind’s compulsion toward violence.
