Actors from Broadway and television are performing in Washington as part of a theater project to help returning soldiers discuss the psychological effects of war and combat.
The program from the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs presents readings of ancient Greek plays to help spur discussions on the challenges faced by combat veterans.
The group performs Monday at an Arlington, Va., Marine Corps facility. On Tuesday, they will perform at a veterans suicide prevention conference and at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
The performances are open to military members and their families.
