What’s punk about one of humanity’s oldest stories? Discover the activist heart of The Iliad in this visceral modern-day retelling. The urgency of Homer’s classic bursts forth from a single narrator—our very own Esther Williamson. Esther will be joined onstage by Hand Grenade Job, an ethereal punk band devoted to “hymns of undoing”. Musicians Erin McCarley (Governess, Pygmy Lush, Delta Dart), and Beck Levy (The Gift, Turboslut) confront war and violence with music that is quite the opposite. Together, they will compose the music for the production and take turns playing live as “the Muse” throughout the run.
