A combat soldier is inflicted with an incurable and insufferable injury. The soldier's comrades cannot bear to hear the cries of pain or the sight of the wound. They maroon the injured soldier and sail away. The soldier is forgotten. That is, until ten years later, when they learn that they cannot end the war without the help of the wounded warrior.
Philoctetes features members of the Warrior Chorus, a national initiative that trains veterans to present innovative public programs based on ancient literature.
