Fifty Days at Iliam – This Weekend!

This weekend, don’t miss the Philly Fringe production of “Fifty Days at Iliam.”

What is “Fifty Days at Iliam,” you ask?
It is a Philly-based theatre ensemble, devising a play exploring the Trojan War/inspired by Cy Twombly’s “Fifty Days at Iliam.” It is led by my sister, Hannah Van Sciver.

It just opened, last night, to rave reviews. Tickets are sold out, but you can still see the show for $5/each – standing room, at the door!
“Fifty Days at Iliam” incorporates my original music, and the production features a wonderful cast and crew. I am thrilled to have been involved.
