The Cure at Troy

The Sedgwick Theater Get Directions

One man holds the sacred weapon that will end the Trojan war, but can Odysseus find a way to convince the outcast Philoctetes to rejoin the Greek army and heal the society that spurned him? Inspired by Nelson Mandela’s release as well as the violent conflicts in Northern Ireland, Seamus Heaney’s The Cure at Troy is a fresh adaptation of Sophocles’ rarely produced Philoctetes. Unlike any tragedy you’ve seen, the choice between revenge or forgiveness was never more important.
