Hillsboro Community Center, 316 Elenore Street, Hillsboro
The Hillsboro Community Center presents a special performance of the Obie-award winning play AN ILIAD, written by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare, performed by actor Algernon D’Ammassa and musician Randy Granger. The duo previously presented their original musical drama, KILLING BUDDHA, at the Community Center last fall. For more about Theatre Dojo, visit www.theatre-dojo.org.
AN ILIAD, based on Robert Fagles’s translation of Homer’s epic poem, is a modern retelling of the Trojan War including gods, warriors, their families, and the endless battles of human history with a gripping, contemporary voice. D’Ammassa and Granger play mysterious, homeless storytellers who create the ancient world for an audience using storytelling, a few simple props, and an improvised musical accompaniment on a variety of musical instruments. Theatre Dojo’s production debuted at the Black Box Theatre in 2014 and has since toured to cities throughout New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, and North Carolina.
The performance will be at 3:00 PM on Sunday, April 30, at the Hillsboro Community Center at 316 Elenore Street.
General admission is $5. For more information call 575-895-3300.
