Outside the Wire presents a special performance of a dramatic reading of scenes from Sophocles' Philoctetes and Women of Trachis for Cambridge Health Alliance.

Monday, October 4

American Repertory Theater, 64 Brattle Street, Cambridge, MA

Directed & Translated by Bryan Doerries, Produced by Phyllis Kaufman

Featuring: Tony-nominated actress Jessica Hecht, along with Megan Brotherton,  Steven Good, and T. Ryder Smith.

END OF LIFE is an innovative project that presents readings of ancient Greek plays as a catalyst for town hall discussions with the public about suffering and death as it touches patients, families, and health professionals who work in the fields of medicine, palliative care, hospice, geriatrics, nursing and clinical bioethics. This unique, participatory event is intended to promote healthy discussion among diverse communities - public and professional - fostering compassion, cooperation, and understanding about living with chronic suffering and the mortality we all share.

Admission is $20 (free for students and trainees) and seating is limited.

RSVP by visiting: www.challiance.org or call 617-499-8344

This performance of End of Life is sponsored by Cambridge Health Alliance and supported in part by a grant from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation for humanism in medicine.
