Summary
"For years, theater director Bryan Doerries has led an innovative public health project that produces ancient tragedies for current and returned soldiers, addicts, tornado and hurricane survivors, and a wide range of other at-risk people in society. Drawing on these extraordinary firsthand experiences, Doerries clearly and powerfully illustrates the redemptive and therapeutic potential of this classical, timeless art: how, for example, Ajax can help soldiers and their loved ones better understand and grapple with PTSD, or how Prometheus Bound provides new insights into the modern penal system."--Jacket flap
Summary
Draws on the celebrated director's work to evaluate the therapeutic potential of the ancient artistic tradition of socially conscious theater, demonstrating how audiences who have suffered from PTSD and other traumas have benefited from its messages and empathetic style
