Director Lisa Peterson and actor Denis O’Hare have adapted Homer’s classic tale of war and rage for the modern stage

Director Lisa Peterson and actor Denis O’Hare have adapted Homer’s classic tale of war and rage for the modern stage. They have also updated it to reflect their own anti-war sensibilities, in part by adding a laundry list of nearly 150 major conflicts since the time of the decade-long siege of Troy/Ilium by a Greek coalition some 3,000 years ago (if it took place at all, about which there is no consensus among scholars)

Lisa Peterson is a nationally renowned director who works in NYC and regional theatres around the country. She was for ten years Resident Director at the Mark Taper Forum. She won an Obie Award for her direction of Caryl Churchill’s Light Shining in Buckinghamshire at New York Theatre Workshop. Denis O’Hare is a writer and Tony Award-winning actor who has performed on Broadway and off-Broadway as well as in numerous regional productions and in film and television. His TV work includes roles on HBO’s True Blood and FX’s American Horror Story.

Meanwhile Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare's theatrical adaptation An Iliad firmly takes a side and runs with it. An Iliad is a one-man show, in which our narrator, 'The Poet,' tells the story of the Trojan War, focusing on the conflict between Achilles and Hector. Abbreviated with admirable succinctness, all major events that occur in the human realm in The Iliad are at least touched upon.

Starring Denis O'Hare and featuring original live music, this adaptation condenses Homer's epic masterpiece into an evening of theatre at its best: intimate, incisive, and urgent. The war in Troy is over – and the Poet saw it all. Back from the frontline, he spins a tale of unquenchable rage, disputatious gods, and grieving widows.

Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare’s plays investigate the power of storytelling and the role that narratives play the world, says Artistic Director Tony Taccone. Peterson and O'Hare have previously collaborated on another stage take on an ancient text: 2012's An Iliad. See See Kristine Nielsen and Annette O’Toole in A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur.

Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare's drama An Iliad is currently running at the Lenox, Massachusetts-based Shakespeare & Company. The solo drama, starring Michael F. Toomey and directed by Jonathan Epstein, runs through November 1 at the Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre

Drawing on the muscular translation by Robert Fagles, Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare have telescoped the mighty expanses of Homer's great poem into an evening that scales the conflict of the Trojan War down to an intimate solo show, illuminating both heroism and the horror of warfare. In language by turns poetic and conversational, An Iliad brilliantly refreshes this world classic.
