Theatre of War  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

Outside the Wire, LLC, a social impact company, will present Michigan State University-sponsored performances of Theater of War.

Theater of War presents readings of Sophocles' Ajax and Philoctetes to military and civilian communities across the United States, Europe and Japan. These ancient plays timelessly and universally depict the psychological and physical wounds inflicted upon warriors by war. By presenting these plays to military and civilian audiences, the hope is to de-stigmatize psychological injury, increase awareness of post-deployment psychological health issues, disseminate information regarding available resources, and foster greater family, community, and troop resilience.

Each performance is approximately 2 hours long. The readings from the plays are followed by discussion with panelists from the local civilian and military communities, and a facilitated town-hall style audience discussion. The performances, translated, directed and facilitated by Bryan Doerries and produced by Phyllis Kaufman, will feature acclaimed stage and film actors.
