Bio 
Bryan Doerries 
 

Writer, director, and translator Bryan Doerries is the founder of Theater of War, a project that presents readings of ancient Greek plays to military and civilian communities to initiate conversations about the wounds of war. A self-described “evangelist” for classical literature, he uses age-old approaches to help communities heal after suffering and loss. Doerries is the author of The Theater of War: What Ancient Greek Tragedies Can Teach Us Today and All That You’ve Seen Here is God, a volume of his translations.
