Under the direction and design of James Blaszko, An Iliad unfolds in the unlikely yet poignant backdrop of the Averill Farm's orchards and barn, in the waning light of day. An intimate audience of 35 gathers around a campfire to hear this breathtaking modern retelling of Homers classic, powerfully and singularly performed by Patrick Vincent Curran, reflecting the manner in which Homer himself may have told the tale.

Audiences are drawn into the fateful clash between Achilles and Hector on the battlefields of the Trojan War by the unexpected use of the truck, a car and a drone, taking the story further out of the theater and grounding it in the here and now. A litany of wars and battles land a visceral blow to the senses, which is done with deftness of humor, pathos, horror and humanity.
