Jesse Eisenberg, star of the Social Network, will be in the Capital Region on Monday, October 24 to participate in two performances of Theater of War, a small project that guides discussions about the impact of war on individuals, families and communities.
Theater of War will include the dramatic reading of two ancient Greek plays: Sophocles’ Ajax and Philoctet. Afterwards,a town hall discussion will be held about the challenges faced by service members, veterans, their families, caregivers, and communities.
Several other well known stage and film actors will join theAcademy Award-nominee on the project, including John Doman (Blue Valentine and HBO’s The Wire ), Glenn Davis (24 ) and Chinasa Ogbuagu (Nurse Jackie.)
It’s refreshing to see a young actor getting involved in small project, for a great cause. What do you think – will attend a performance?
