The Heal Written & Directed by Aaron Posner Music by Cliff Eberhardt A re-imagining of Philoctetes by Sophocles Co-Produced by Round House Theatre
A bold new version of Sophocles’s timeless tale of hurting—and healing. The wounded Philoctetes (Phil) has suffered alone on a desert island for years, stranded there by Odysseus. But now Odysseus needs Phil’s magic weapons to win the Trojan War and enlists Achilles’s daughter Nia to help make peace. Director/adaptor Aaron Posner creates an irreverent, spiritual, musical exploration about the wounds we carry, the ones we cause, and the redeeming power of human connection. With music by Cliff Eberhardt and co-produced by Maryland's Round House Theatre.
This production is recommended for persons 12 years and older.
