A Female Philoctetes based on Sophocles' Philoctetes by the internationally renowned theatrical company Aquila Theatre from New York | Thu., 2nd of July 2015, at 21:00

The internationally renowned theatrical company Aquila Theatre from New York presents its new production A Female Philoctetes, based on Sophocles' Philoctetes translated by Peter Meineck and directed and adapted by Desiree Sanchez, for only one performance on Thursday, 2nd of July 2015, at 21:00, in the Theatre of MCF. Sophocles' ancient play, Philoctetes, captures a reality for all combat veterans who have been physically wounded and explores ethical dilemmas, as dynamic and relevant today as they were to the Greeks 2500 years ago. Aquila Theatre explored this ancient play, re-imagining the title role played as a female combat soldier. This performance is part of You|Stories: Classics - Conversation - Connection, a national program funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. You | Stories is a national program aimed at members of the Veteran community and the public that uses ancient stories about war to inspire new stories.
