An Iliad Presents Arkansas Stories of War

What has really changed since the Trojan War?

The Poet, played by Rep veteran Joseph Graves, helps answer this question in our latest production, An Iliad, the inqaugural production in our newspace, The Annex, located at 518 Main St.

Running now through March 5, the play adapts Homer’s Trojan War epic into a compelling monologue that captures both the heroism and horror of warfare.
