a play by Charles Mee
directed by Jessica Heidt
"Americans have been living in the shadow of a war for years. We've been told it's over, yet the body count continues to rise and additional masses of troops have already been deployed. 37% of the soldiers that return home from the Middle East and Afghanistan are struggling with the effects of PTSD, including depression, alcoholism, violence and the societal stigma attached to it, and the lack of attention and care that the government gives them to deal with this injury incurred in "the line of duty." Chuck Mee's Orsetes 2.0 looks at this modern crisis, and dissects the idea of duty to examine where the root of the matter lies. With humor, pathos, found text, the Greeks and a post modern flair- Orestes 2.0 is an in your face work that holds everyone accountable"
