Outside the Wire Performance - Limited to first 100 attendees
Limited Capacity seats available

New York-based Outside the Wire theater company, featuring Zach Grenier (of "The Good Wife”, “Deadwood”, and “Fight Club”) in the role of Philoctetes, will perform excerpts from a Greek tragedy by Sophocles that addresses pain, transference, betrayal, confrontation – ancient issues that still resonate in the modern world. Performance includes reflection on the performance by invited panelists and audience participation.

About Theatre of War: Philoctetes
Theater of War: Philoctetes is an innovative project that presents readings of Sophocles’ Philoctetes as a catalyst for town hall discussions about chronic illness and suffering as it touches patients, families, caregivers, and health professionals. This unique, participatory event is intended to promote healthy discussion among diverse communities - public and professional - fostering compassion, cooperation, and understanding. The project is also a teaching tool used by medical institutions, such as: Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, Weill Cornell Medical College, St. Louis Children’s Hospital, and the University of Virginia School of Medicine.

About the Play
Sophocles’ Philoctetes tells the story of decorated warrior who is abandoned on a deserted island because of mysterious chronic illness that he contracts on the way to the Trojan War. Nine years later, the Greeks learn from an oracle that in order to win the war they must rescue him from island. When they finally come for him, the wounded warrior must overcome nine long years of festering resentment and shame in order to accept help from the very men who betrayed him.  

Outside the Wire
Outside the Wire is a social impact company that uses theater and a variety of other media to help communities address pressing public health and social issues, such as combat-related psychological injury, suicide, end of life care, prison reform, political violence and torture, natural and manmade disasters, domestic violence, alcohol/substance abuse and addiction.
