Valencia College To Host Reading Of Ancient Greek Drama About Refugee Crisis

(February 5, 2019)

On Feb. 21, Valencia College's West Campus will host a dramatic reading of "The Suppliants" by Aeschylus, an ancient Greek drama centered around a chorus of 50 female refugees seeking asylum in the city of Argos. As internal struggle rocks Argos and its citizens debate whether to receive the refugees, the group of women await the decision of their collective fate. The reading will be followed by a discussion on themes addressed in the text.

The Theater of War productions are supported by the "Dialogues on the Experience of War" grant program, which is awarded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
