Bryan Doerries, the artistic director of Theater of War Productions, joins host Mark Healey to discuss how his production can assist those afflicted with PTSD. Theater of War is a dramatic reading of Sophocles’ “Ajax,” presented on April 17 at the Rockaway Theatre Company’s Post Theater at Fort Tilden from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m, The company presents readings of Sophocles’ Ajax and Philoctetes to military and civilian communities across the United States and Europe. These ancient plays timelessly and universally depict the visible and invisible wounds of war. By presenting these plays to military and civilian audiences, the hope is to de-stigmatize psychological injury, increase awareness of post-deployment psychological health issues, disseminate information regarding available resources, and foster greater family, community, and troop resilience.
