Theater of Law: Manhattan DA

July 19, 2017

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 the Manhattan DA’s Office and featured actors Kathryn Erbe (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Homicide: Life on the Street, Oz), Zach Grenier (The Good Wife, Deadwood, 24, Twister), and Ana Reeder (Damages, Hedda Gabler, Top Girls, Sight Unseen).
