Theater of War Performance

Submitted by Emily Betthauser

Theater of War will be performing on Saturday, November 7, from 7 - 8:30 p.m. at the Karl C. Bruder Theatre at Emporia State University: King Hall, 1301 Market Street, Emporia, KS 66801. Local military partners and families are invited to attend.

Theater of War, presented by Outside the Wire, is an innovative public health project that presents powerful dramatic readings of Sophocles’ Ajax. Ajax is an Ancient Greek war play to encourage town hall discussions in military communities about combat and deployment-related stress, psychological injury, alcohol and substance abuse, suicide and the impact of military service on families.

Theater of War has also been presented to mixed military/civilian audiences, at universities and theaters, in order to help bridge the growing divide and to rally communities in support of Service Members, Veterans, and their families.
