Inspired by the writings of James Hillman (A Terrible Love of War), Chris Hedges (War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning and What Every Person Should Know About War) and Lawrence LeShan (The Psychology of War : Comprehending Its Mystique and Its Madness),  Professor Wesley Savick explores the nature of war in this original work for the stage. How do we make war “normal?”  Is war an inevitable and fundamental part of the human condition?  Can our impulse for war ever be tamed?  This theatrical event incorporates mythology, stage combat, live music and a sweeping array of personal accounts to explore the contradictory nature of war within all of us.

This event is free and open to the public, but may not be suitable for all audiences. To make a reservation, please call 617.573.8282 starting November 1.
