SacImpulse Theatre presents Jerry Lee in the Sacramento premiere of “An Iliad,” by Lisa Peterson and Denis O’Hare, based on Homer’s “The Iliad,” translated by Robert Fagles.

The epic poem of the Trojan War sees Greek hero Achilles avenging the death of his friend Patroclus. Here a narrator tells the tale in contemporary vernacular with verse and some of the original Greek poetry.

The production opens Friday at 8 p.m. and continues through Nov. 2 at 8 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the Wilkerson Theatre, 1723 25th St., Sacramento. Tickets: $12-$21 www.sacimpulse.com
