Mizzou hosts dramatic reading to talk about the tolls of war
COLUMBIA (AP) - A dramatic reading of an ancient Greek tragedy in which the title character commits suicide will be featured as part of a contemporary conversation at the University of Missouri this week about the tolls of war.
The free presentation of Sophocles' "Ajax" is part of the Theater of War: Soldiers & Citizens Tour. The reading by actors Brent Harris and Chinasa Ogbuagu is followed by a town hall discussion organizers said explores "the visible and invisible wounds of war."
The national tour comes to the Rhynsberger Theatre in Columbia on Thursday and begins at 7 p.m.
