THE ILIAD, by DANIEL MORDEN & HUGH LUPTON

 

The story of the siege and fall of Troy is as contemporary now as it has ever been. It is a blueprint for every war that has ever been fought – an extraordinary account of the savagery and mad ecstasy of the battlefield, filled with dark humour.

This performance by acclaimed storytellers Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden includes many famous episodes half-familiar to us all – the wrangle over the Apple of Discord, the abduction of Helen, the launching of a thousand ships, the wrath of Achilles, the death of Hector…

And presiding over it all is a cast of immortal gods and goddesses who – with their petty bickerings – are more than ready to wreak havoc among mortals.
