The Suppliants Project by Theater of War Productions featuring performances by David Zayas (Dexter), David Denman (The Office), Andrea Patterson (Blue Bloods), Frankie Faison (The Wire), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent), and Dorina Castillo on April 14th at 6:30 pm CT, register here. This virtual performance will be live online.

The Suppliants Project presents 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.

This performance is sponsored by the Department of Classics, the Simeon Leland Forum Fund, the Classics Cluster, and the Department of Political Science.
