Yesterday I received my Phi Beta Kappa "The Key Reporter" spring 2008 issue in the mail. There was an article titled "The Difficult Patient, a Problem Old as History (or Older) by Abilgail Zuger. It was linked to the next article "About The Philoctetes Project" by Bryan Doerries.
If you happen to live near enough to Bard College (Annandale-on-Hudson, NY), you can attend for free this Saturday, March 22, 2008, at 2:00pm. There will be a dramatic reading at Bard College's Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, featuring: Michael Stuhlbarg, Jesse Eisenberg, John Schmerling, and Adam Ludwig, followed by a panel discussion with: Norman Austin, Daniel Mendelsohn, Alice Quinn, and Jonathan Shay.
If like me, you live too far away, you may Click here to watch a recent performance of Philoctetes. It is well worth it!!!
