For more than a decade, the social impact company Theater of War Productions​ has performed ancient plays and other seminal texts in unlikely places—such as hospitals, military bases, homeless shelters, prisons, houses of worship, and public housing developments​—​to catalyze and frame crucial conversations about issues of public health and social justice. In this workshop session—open to Kenyon students, faculty, staff, and residents of Knox County—Theater of War Productions will present a scene from Bryan Doerries’ new translation of Sophocles’ Oedipus at Colonus in order to frame a discussion about the how the company’s model works and how it might be applied to specific issues that impact people living in Gambier and Mount Vernon. The workshop will begin with the reading—featuring the actors David Zayas (Dexter), Moses Ingram (The Queen's Gambit), Marjolaine Goldsmith (Afterwords), and Frankie Faison (The Wire)—followed by a guided audience discussion, focussing on the identification of potential issues, texts, and collaborators for the development of a new project, which Theater of War productions will present on Zoom in late-March.
