#theaternow will present An Iliad, directed by Tommy Butler and featuring Daniel J. Tobin, on Saturday January 26th at 8pm and Sunday January 27th at 3pm.
This 90-minute, one-man show focuses on the core of Homer’s epic poem which has been shaped in a way that is both modern and timeless. A forceful retelling of a classic, this will be a performance that you won’t want to miss.
