Philoctetes Redux

This video is LONG–about 54 minutes–but poignant.   They’re reading an adaptation of Philoctetes,  the play that earned Sophocles first prize at the Festival of Dionysius in 409 BCE.

I first heard about  The Philoctetes Project and its work with veterans suffering from PTSD on the radio news while driving to work this morning.
