    Event Description:
    Back by popular demand, Commonweal’s Wealhouse series presents the one-person show An Iliad featuring Commonweal ensemble member Ben Gorman and directed by former company member Megan Pence. A traveling Poet arrives and, speaking as one with first-hand knowledge, slowly begins to unfold the story of the ancient conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans. He not only describes major events of the war but illuminates them through the lens of our modern age, intimately revealing the devastation warfare brings to those who experience it. By turns triumphant and horrific, his tale brings the mythical story to human scale with profound impact and intensity, laying bare both the beauty and horror of what it is to be human.
