UC Presents: Theater of War
CCM's Patricia Corbett Theater at CCM

Theater of War is an innovative public health project that presents readings of ancient Greek plays, Sophocles' Ajax and Philoctetes, as a catalyst for town hall discussions about the challenges faced by service members, veterans, their families, caregivers and communities. Using Sophocles' plays to forge a common vocabulary for openly discussing the visible and invisible wounds of war on individuals, families and communities, these events are aimed at fostering understanding and compassion, while mobilizing citizens and resources to help improve the lives of service members, veterans, their families, and people in their communities.

The UC Production is sponsored by: the Office of the Provost, the Department of Classics, the CCM Harmony Fund: Challenging Hate and Prejudice through Performing Arts, the TAFT Research Center, the Helen Weinberger Center for the study of Drama and Playwriting, and the A&S Deans Office
