RSVP to register.
The Suppliants Project presents dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of scenes from Aeschylus’ play The Suppliants—an ancient tragedy about fifty refugees who seek asylum in the ancient city of Argos, and the struggle within that city about whether to receive them—as a catalyst for powerful, candid discussions about immigration, domestic and gender-based violence, human trafficking, and the refugee crisis.
Translated, directed, and facilitated by Bryan Dorries.
