WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Actors' Shakespeare Project presents Living in Exile, by Jon Lipsky, directed by Allyn Burrows. This stunning retelling of the Illiad suggests that the years spent by the Greek soldiers on the beachheads of Asia Minor have haunting similarities to the years spent b American soldiers on the beachheads of Vietnam, in the mountains of Afghanistan, and in the desert of Iraq. The lives of the women of Saigon or Baghdad may not be so different from the lives of the "barbarian" women kidnapped onto the plains of Troy. Living in Exile is a compelling was story, but, more importantly, a story of compassion and the human heart.
