About the show

Based on a true story, this epic drama tells the story of Henry Schliemann, a wealthy entrepreneur, who embarks on a rocky, 20-year journey to discover the ancient city of Troy, using 'The Iliad' as his guide and inspiration. More…

Overcoming skeptics, cynics, and scholars of ancient antiquities, Schliemann pours all his efforts and accumulated wealth into the quest, accompanied by his 17-year-old Greek bride, and his undervalued partner, Frank Calvert. Throughout their quest, significant figures from 'The Iliad' appear – Achilles, Hector, Menelaus, King Priam, and Helen herself – as ghosts that haunt and guide the three main characters as they pursue their search for the walls of Troy.

Stage Buddy

"Done with great consciousness and dabbles of humor...Lew keeps the stage interesting during every moment, ensuring that even during the more informational scenes there is action and movement on the stage, keeping the audience intrigued and never bored. The talented three-actor ensemble were a joy to watch...A standout performance by Leavitt...Filled with impeccable comic timing and sensitivity. A thoroughly intriguing and enjoyable play."
