Quite possibly the most exciting play I've ever worked on. Outside of modern religious discourse, there simply are no more colossal characters than these. Luke, Leia, Dr. Who, Jean Brodie, Harry Potter, Batman, George and Martha, Hamlet, Cleopatra... these are all great characters of course, but none of them hold a candle to Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, Hecuba, Priam, Helen. I had no idea how thrilling it would be to bring these characters to life until we got into them rehearsal room and began to discover who they really are and how much they are a part of us. Intensely deep and personal work from Willie Repoley (The Poet) and Jan Powell (The Muse). I hope we can do this one again.
