AN ILIAD returns the ancient Greek epic to its oral tradition, and offers a layer of modern perspective to the form. The Poet, played by MaConnia Chesser, tells the story and plays all the parts. She guides us through the ferocious chaos of battle in a tale of honor, glory, and rage. With wry humor and pointed observation, she infuses Homer’s epic with a contemporary point-of-view.

AOH’s season has been made possible through support from the NY State Council on the Arts, with additional funding for AN ILIAD provided by a NYSCA Restart NY: Rapid Live Performance Grant.
