Jon Lipsky’s Living in Exile, directed by Christopher McElroen (Waiting for Godot in New Orleans) and featuring T Ryder Smith, is a radically intimate two-character retelling of Homer’s Iliad performed in a private American living room. Eloquent and moving, 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. Seating is extremely limited! Photo Credit: Smith Butler
