Theater of War is an innovative public health project that presents readings of scenes from ancient Greek plays–Sophocles’ Ajax and Philoctetes–as a catalyst for guided discussions about the challenges faced by service members, veterans, and their families. Using Sophocles’ plays to forge a common vocabulary for openly discussing the visible and invisible wounds of war, these events are aimed at generating compassion and understanding between diverse audiences.
We will be presenting Theater of War on November 6th 2020 as a collaboration with Bravehound, a Scottish charity that supports veterans and their families in the United Kingdom. We are proud to open this event up to the public, fostering healing dialogue with the Bravehound community. Visit: www.bravehound.co.uk
Featuring performances by Jason Isaacs, Nyasha Hatendi, and Lesley Sharp.
Translated and directed, and facilitated by Bryan Doerries
