About the project

The Suppliants

Translated and Directed by Bryan Doerries

The Suppliants is an innovative new project, developed by Theater of War Productions, that will present dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of scenes from Aeschylus’ play The Suppliants—an ancient tragedy about fifty female 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 human trafficking, immigration, and current refugee crisis.
