Griot Theatre was selected for The Getty Villa Theatre Lab in April, 2016 and participated in a two week residency there. This Greek classic is named for the loyal friend of Hercules who was entrusted with his bow, upon the demi-god's death. The Greeks, who abandoned the snake-bitten Philoctetes on the island of Lemnos 10 years earlier, return, now in need of him and the bow to win the Trojan War. They must convince, trick, or force Philoctetes to join their efforts. The play explores questions of loss, betrayal, loyalty and whether one's ends always justifies the means.
