Event description

Description

Theater of War is a free, interactive performance of scenes from Sophocles' Ajax and Philoctetes, ancient plays about the visible and invisible wounds caused by violence and war. The event is open to everyone, including veterans and their communities, students, artists, and concerned citizens. Each performance is followed by a powerful audience discussion led by community panelists. This groundbreaking project is designed to promote understanding, compassion, and positive action.
