Michael Hurst's take on Homer's Iliad

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:24 pm on 28 May 2019

It's the epic Greek poem that has been retold time and again and now it has a new take. An Iliad has just one performer, playing all 54 characters from the ancient tale, accompanied by a musician.

That performer is one of New Zealand's best stage actors, Michael Hurst. 

Fresh from a sell-out season in Dunedin, the award-winning show is headed for Auckland and Michael is in studio to tell us more. You can find tickets here
