Aquila Theatre:The Trojan War 

When: Thu., March 30, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $6- $30

New York's Aquila Theatre has attempted to bridge ancient and contemporary wars in a series of projects over the past two decades. In 1999, its take on the Trojan War placed it on the beaches of Normandy during World War II. Subsequent stagings of the first book of the Iliad and A Female Philoctetes sought to connect the words of Homer and Sophocles to the war narratives of modern-day veterans. At N.C. State on Thursday, The Trojan War goes even further. It incorporates a "warrior chorus" of real-life combat veterans into what should be a more authentic staging than most, interrogating the facts of battle and the nature of democracy. —Byron Woods
