Theater of War
A reading of Sophocles’ Ajax, with town hall discussion
Theater of War casts nationally-recognized actors to perform a live reading of Sophocles’ Ajax, the ancient Greek play about the suicide of a great warrior. Over the past five years, this innovative public health project has served as a catalyst for facilitated town hall discussions about suicide, combat stress, alcohol and substance abuse, and the impact of war on families.
