Some of us have attended productions hosted by this group. I find it a very powerful way to frame important issues using the arts.

Theater of War Frontline MSF
October 7, 2020
This event is hosted by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and will present scenes from Sophocles’ Philoctetes and Women of Trachis to create a vocabulary for discussing themes such as death/dying, grief, deviation from standards of care, abandonment, helplessness, and complex ethical decisions. We are proud to open this event up to the public, to bring the broader community impacted by COVID-19 and concerned citizens into dialogue with frontline medical providers throughout the world.
Featuring performances by Frances McDormand as Hercules, Marjolaine Goldsmith, Frankie Faison as Philoctetes, and Nyasha Hatendi.
