ND Forum presents "The Suppliants" in Notre Dame Stadium Oct. 3

Author: James Comerford


Join us for a powerful theatrical experience that invites you into a global discussion about war in Ukraine and in many other parts of our world.

On October 3, iconic Notre Dame Stadium will provide the backdrop for The Suppliants Project: Ukraine, in partnership with Theater of War Productions.

Featuring Emmy-winning actors, Anthony Edwards and Keith David as well as actor/director Tate Donovan and 7 Ukrainian students currently studying at Notre Dame, the cast will perform a dramatic reading of Aeschylus’ play The Suppliants, a Greek tragedy about the costs of war. Following the reading, a panel of Notre Dame community members who have experienced violence and war in countries around the world will offer their reactions and experiences, kicking off a town-hall style global discussion designed to draw out our reactions to the themes of the play, foster empathy, compassion and a deeper understanding of complex issues, and help us consider our role as peace-makers in the world.

This is a free event, and all are welcome.
