Theater Emory is partnering with Theater of War Productions to present a free, public presentation of Theater of War. Theater of War Productions, supported by a generous grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation in collaboration with the United Service Organizations, is partnering with prominent theaters and universities across the United States to present Theater of War for mixed audiences comprised of military service members and civilians. Theater of War is an innovative project that presents readings of Ancient Greek plays – Sophocles’ Ajax and Philoctetes – as a catalyst for town hall discussions about the challenges faced by service members, veterans, and their families and caregivers today. Using Sophocles’ plays to forge a common vocabulary for openly discussing the impact of war on individuals, families and communities, these events will be aimed at generating compassion and understanding between diverse audiences.
