The Greek warrior Achilles refuses to fight in the Trojan War, which leads to disastrous results for both the Greeks and their enemy. Dramatic scenes in the mortal world alternate with comic scenes on Mount Olympus, where the gods are fighting their own, often ridiculous "war" to see which side will win. Funny, nimble, and accessible, Dis/Troy retains the eloquence and complexity of Homer's well-known classic.

Published Reviews

"It would be difficult to come up with a more entertaining and accessible entry-level treatment of The Iliad than playwright Yokanaan Kearns provides with Dis/Troy."

John Berger, Honolulu Star Bulletin

"Although Dis/Troy [is aimed] at teenagers, the bloodless violence and comic content makes it fine fare for preteens already steeped in televised and video-game combat, while adults may also enjoy the humor in Kearns' script and the quality of the cast's performance."

John Berger, Honolulu Star Bulletin

"The remarkable thing about Dis/Troy, Yokanaan Kearns' new play for the Honolulu Theatre for Youth, is the way it blends outright silliness with realistic fight scenes to make Homer's Iliad accessible to contemporary school audiences -- all in the space of one hour."

Joseph Rozmirek, Honolulu Advertiser
