Theater of Law

Theater of Law is a collaborative project between FOLCS and Theater of War Productions that presents a dramatic reading from Aeschylus’ Eumenides—an ancient Greek tragedy about the birth of trial by jury in the western world—for individuals interested in why vengeance was replaced by the rule of law. This reading acts as a catalyst for conversation about the role of the public in seeking justice.

"Can you not comprehend the difference between a prison cell, which can be always unlocked and from which there are countless ways to be free, and death?"
