On November 3, Vassar College hosts Outside the Wire’s dramatic reading of scenes from Sophocles’ PTSD drama “Ajax” in the college chapel. Outside the Wire nourishes discussion and understanding for a range of psychologically debilitating injuries from substance abuse to prison reform by using readings of famous works to nourish discussion and understanding. The group’s Theater of War series presents readings of Greek tragedies to both military and civilian communities in hopes of stimulating the awareness, acceptance, and assimilation of soldiers rejoining society. After the reading, hear the testimonies of local veterans at a panel discussion followed by a moderated audience talkback. (845) 437-5604.
