Living In Exile

Synopsis:
Jon Lipsky's Living in exile is a radically intimate two-character retelling of Homer's Iliad performed in a private living room. eloquent, moving and often violent, Living in exile is a meditation on the costs of prolonged warfare, imperialist culture shock, and the citizen-as-spectator. actors and audiences will experience the play in the same intimate setting: an American living room.
