An Iliad

Oregon State Correctional Institution, Salem, OR

I’m writing and performing the music for a play that we’ll be performing in prisons in Oregon. It’s an incredible project. More here:

Northwest Classical Theatre Collaborative is happy to once again partner with director/producer Patrick Walsh on an exciting new project that will bring theatre to those members of our community who have the least access to it and therefore need it the most.

From September 29th to November 4th NWCTC will be partnering with Open Hearts Open Minds to tour Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare's, AN ILIAD to correctional facilities throughout Oregon, as well as to under-served communities within Multnomah County.

Paul Susi will star as The Poet (with live musical accompaniment by local cellist Anna Fritz) to tell this tour-de-force modern retelling of Homer's epic tale of love, battle, gods and honor. Has anything really changed since the Trojan War?
