The Wilbury Theatre Group proudly presents the Rhode Island premiere of Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare's highly acclaimed Obie award-winning adaptation of Homer's epic poem, An Iliad. Directed by Clara Weishahn (Sharon in DETROIT at the Wilbury Group) and featuring Rhode Island native Matthew Fraza as "The Poet", this re-telling brings to life the ancient tale of gods, goddesses, warriors and their families, and the endless battles of human history with a gripping, modern voice.

"Spellbinding...Smartly conceived and impressively executed, An Iliad relates an age-old story that resonates with tragic meaning today." -The New York Times

"An Iliad is pure theater: shocking, glorious, primal and deeply satisfying." -Time Out NY

"Explosive, altogether breathtaking...Brilliantly meshes past and present calamity, with touches of the most caustic dark humor suddenly shifting into unimaginable pathos." -Chicago Sun-Times

"A brilliant and thrilling adaptation." -The Philadelphia Inquirer
