Theater of War for the Emergency Medicine Community is an innovative project that presents dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of scenes from ancient Greek plays to help emergency physicians and other healthcare professionals engage in healing, constructive discussions about the unique challenges and stressors of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Using plays by Sophocles and other ancient authors to create a vocabulary for discussing themes such as personal risk, death/dying, grief, deviation from standards of care, abandonment, helplessness, and complex ethical decisions, the project aims to foster connection, community, moral resilience, and positive action.
