THREE, a performance group presents, An Iliad by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare. A retelling of the Trojan War that turns the heroic classic into a bitter personal struggle marked with loss and uncertainties.

An Iliad switches the focus of the Trojan War from epic grandeur to the human soul. An ancient poet, tasked to retell this story for eternity, not only tells the story of that famous war countless years ago, she becomes it. She becomes every soul, every god, and every heartbreak. Long has she lost her identity to this world as she desperately needs her audience to recognize mankind’s love of violence, and the humanity it destroys. For her, the Trojan War is not simply a fairy tale, but a true, haunting horror.

An Iliad is a masterful creation that captures the nature of the men who fought it and rediscovers their pains, revelations, and fears. The arch of the war is brought into sharp focus and told as never before.

THREE is a new performance group based in Albuquerque New Mexico. It is organized to foster the growth of new theatre and to present new works. THREE is an experiment in creation, presentation, and growth of new theatre.

Performances of An Iliad run in Albuquerque May 22nd and 23rd at 7:30 pm and May 31st at 2:00 pm at Tricklock Performance Laboratory 110 Gold Ave SW Albuquerque, NM 87102. And in Santa Fe June 5th at 7:30 and June 7 at 2:00 at Teatro Paraguas 3205 Calle Marie Suite B Santa Fe, NM 87507. Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 student and seniors.
