​The Heal: Inspired by Sophocles's Philoctetes

About the play: The Heal is 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 and adapter Aaron Posner creates and irreverent, spiritual, and musical exploration about the wounds we carry, the ones we cause, and the redeeming power of human connection.
