Run time: 100 minutes, no intermission.
An Iliad is a reimagining of Homer’s classic for the modern world. Leon Ingulsrud of NYC's SITI Company plays The Poet, an ageless wanderer who is doomed to retell the story of Achilles' rage and his confrontation with Hector again and again, until the world finally understands. The play wrestles with the horrors – and the seductive appeal – of war in a way that is both timeless and current. This production is a Houston premiere and will feature original music by Shepherd School composer Ben Morris and direction by Rice alumnus Rob Kimbro.Some content not suitable for all audiences.
