“Santa Fe Playhouse’s centennial season reflects what the world has gone through during the past two years—from medical terror, to psychological upheaval, to reckoning with racism and social justice. Coming out of this pandemic, we not only have to redefine what ‘normal’ means; we have to open ourselves up to the possibility that there is no ‘normal.’ These plays remind us that life is messy and undefined no matter who we are, or what control we think we have. It is up to us to choose how to respond. What we hope is that there is an activation of kindness and compassion that comes with witnessing these particular stories, both within our audiences and artists.”Robyn Rikoon | Artistic Director

Homer’s epic, borne on the backs of gods and warriors, dismantled and reconstructed by modern playwrights and actors. In this co-production between Santa Fe Playhouse and North Carolina’s RhinoLeap Productions, a world-weary poet tells a wrenching, timeless tale of the Trojan War, of bravery and blood and the heat of battle.
