In 2005, Lisa Petersen called me up to ask me if I had ever read The Iliad. I do remember reading the Odyssey but I couldn’t remember having read The Iliad but I said, “Yes, of course”, because – well, you just have to.
Denis O’Hare is the co-author with Lisa Petersen of “An Iliad” – a one man stage retelling of Homer’s famous poem. The play has been produced at Seattle Rep, Portland, The McCarter Theatre in Princeton, NJ, The Court Theatre in Chicago and will have its New York City debut this February at the New York Theatre Workshop.
In addition, Mr. O’Hare has written several screenplays including one that is slated to go into production next July in New York or L.A.
