Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges has reported on war from more than 50 countries.
But at a PlayMakers Repertory Company community forum tonight, his focus will be the battlefields of 15th-century England.
The forum will focus on society’s “cultural addiction to war,” which Hedges explores in his best-selling book, “War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning.” The bestseller, which came out in 2002, was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year.
Attend the forum:
Time: 7 p.m. tonight
Location: Paul Green Theatre
In PlayMakers’ current production, “The Making of a King,” the characters are constantly engaged in military conflict — first in a civil war, and then with France.
Staff writer Grace Tatter spoke to Hedges about the commonalities between war in the “Henry” plays and conflict today, and what makes America particularly vulnerable to the seductive power of war.
