Wrath of Achilles

The Trojan War rages. 

As the Greek army throws themselves against Troy’s impenetrable walls, three desperate lives are woven together by the Fates.

A godlike warrior; his devoted companion; an enslaved queen. The three find a kindred spirit amongst the bloodshed, unaware that the choices they make will shape the course of ancient history.

Bedivere Arts’ new adaptation of Homer’s Iliad, complete with a cinematic original score by acclaimed composer George Jennings, explores modern ideas of masculinity and gender.

Wrath of Achilles is well-staged, well-
written, and has acting that would make
Homer proud."
