Originally aired on October 28
Re-release November 30
Don’t miss an unforgettable conversation between two social activists whose pens have proven mightier than swords. As a translator of ancient texts, and artistic director of Theater of War Productions, New York-based Bryan Doerries routinely brings catharsis to the traumatized by framing dramatic readings and facilitating discussions on pressing issues of public health and social justice. In live conversation with the inimitable Margaret Atwood, Doerries will discuss his latest book: a fresh translation of Sophocles’ three Theban plays, titled Oedipus Trilogy. You’ll discover why these classic Greek tragedies still resonate, and learn why this ancient technology of storytelling is so vital today.
