AUGUST 21 to OCTOBER 3, 2010


written and directed by JON TRACY
inspired by The Iliad by Homer

"And as I look down at my hands, I see the future of creation.
that, Odysseus, is why you will follow me into war."
From the team that brought you The Farm comes a unique beat on the most famous war story ever told. Using every classic text on the subject, this original work breaks down the insanity of war into an explosive musical soundscape that will lay egos bare, implode cities, and call into question everything you've ever been forced to believe is true.

feedback central

We've finally figured out a way for folks to share comments about their experience with the rest of our community. You probably know this already but please consider the following before lettin' it fly:

* Don't be mean. 
* Don't write words you wouldn't say in front of your grandma or my daughters.
* Don't go promoting outside causes.

Sound fair? Good. Now grab that keyboard and break it down.
