A breathtakingly-relevant, modern retelling of a timeless classic.
“It’s a good story,” says the lone figure, just emerged from the darkness, as he launches into this modern, enthralling adaptation of Homer’s epic poem that relives the glory and brutality of the Trojan War. Wisconsin-favorite actor, James DeVita, shares the stage with a virtuoso musician in this lean, muscular, tour-de-force performance filled with wit and wisdom that conjures the rage of the gods as it delves deep into mankind’s attraction to violence and destruction.
“Pure theater: shocking, glorious, primal, and deeply satisfying.” – TIMEOUT NY
