New World Iliads

Our exploratory play reading series ForePlay, where playwrights
riff on the themes of our mainstage production, is back!

New World Iliads will take place on three nights with each night treating a contemporary war from a mythic perspective. In the same way that Ajax in Iraq re-imagines a war from thousands of years ago, New World Iliads will imagine what our contemporary wars may look like from the same distance: the gods, the heroes and villains; what details will be erased by time and what will remain? How will the art inspired by today’s conflicts inform the myths of tomorrow?

Join us on May 16 for ForePlay #1
