Theater of Law is an innovative project, co-produced by FOLCS and Theater of War Productions. In an intimate, engaging live performance, a group of actors present dramatic readings of scenes from Aeschylus’ Eumenides — an ancient Greek tragedy about the birth of trial by jury in the western world and the death of blood vengeance — for audiences of lawyers, jurists, law students, bar associations and victims’ rights groups.
The reading is followed by a powerful facilitated discussion with the audience that addresses the unique ethical and emotional challenges of working within the modern legal system, and coming before the law in search of justice today.
This performance was hosted at Georgetown Law and featured actors Elizabeth Marvel (House of Cards, Homeland, Fargo), Obi Abili (Billions, Delicious, Tula: The Revolt), Linda Powell (The Good Wife, Law & Order: SVU, On Golden Pond), and David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck, The Bourne Ultimatum, A League of Their Own).
