The Iliad - Camden Fringe 2017
The Lion and Unicorn
It was the tenth year of the siege of Troy, the year the soothsayers had predicted the city would fall. The mightiest Princes of Ancient Greece are still camped in their thousand black, beached ships on the shore beneath the plain that leads to the high walls of Troy.Clare Goodall, award winning storyteller and musician, tells her own adaptation of this epic tale of love, tragedy and loss. In just fifty minutes, Helen of Troy, Achilles, Odysseus, Hector, and others come vividly to life to strive for glory, honour, love, freedom or peace. Some win, some lose and many die brutally in bloodshed.
