Achilles has a decision to make: live peacefully, or die in battle and be remembered forever.

The choice becomes harder when Agamemnon, the High King of Greece, publicly dishonours Achilles. Achilles withdraws from the fighting, but when his friend Patroclus dies in battle, his need for revenge drives him back in to the war, even though he knows it will mean his death.

This retelling of Homer’s Iliad updates the setting to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. It explores the horror of war through the characters of the ancient Greek epic and an all-female chorus of singers.

This show is part of Te Pou Theatre's Rangatahi Season.
