This classic comedy opens as a group of guys assemble for cards in the apartment of the divorced Oscar Madison. And if the mess is any indication, it’s no wonder that his wife left him.

The clean-freak and the slob ultimately decide to room together with hilarious results as The Odd Couple is born.

An Iliad is a modern-day retelling of Homer’s classic. Poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide in this captivating theatrical experience. The lone figure onstage is a storyteller — possibly Homer, possibly one of the many bards who followed in Homer’s footsteps. She is fated to tell this story throughout history.
