Aquila Theatre Company and a Warrior Chorus of U.S. veterans/actors mount this visceral show in which classic battles are set against narratives of modern-day war. More…
'Our Trojan War' uses epic moments from Homer’s 'Iliad' and scenes from other classical Greek drama and poetry to propel its chronicle of men and women at war. The clash of gods and heroes, the rage of Achilles, the suicide of Ajax, the fall of Troy, and the rise of Rome are among the many stories of war and homecoming presented in the piece, which poses urgent questions about modern democracy. What does democracy mean? What kind of democracy do we want to live in? How do we preserve and protect the democracy we have?
See it if You like shows that try to mix classic tragedy with today real war stories
Don't see it if You are not into overly intellectual and pretentious theater pieces. This show will leave you totally bored and confused
See it if you know Greek mythology. Long time since high school & the constant weaving between the present & the classics was too confusing for me.
Don't see it if you don't remember your Greek mythology. Pity because it's a great cast and gorgeous production.
