A Homer’s Coat Production

Written by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare
Based on Homer’s Iliad, translated by Robert Fagles
Directed by Lisa Peterson
Starring Denis O’Hare

In a radical retelling of Homer’s epic poem, acclaimed director Lisa Peterson and Tony Award-winning actor Denis O’Hare (Take Me Out) craft a work of “pure theater: shocking, glorious, primal, and deeply satisfying” (Time Out New York). O’Hare, who has brought powerful performances to numerous films and featured roles on TV’s The Good Wife and American Horror Story, shapes this breathtaking tour de force into a sweeping account of humanity’s unshakable attraction to violence, destruction, and chaos.
