A griot is a story teller who preserves the history and culture of a village or community, and that's exactly what the Griot Theatre aims to do with The Archer From Malis. As part of The Getty Villa's 2016 Theatre Lab program, this Greek classic will get a workshop production at the Villa followed by this full production at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. The play follows Philoctetes, a 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. This adaption of Sophocles' play on the subject explores questions of loss, betrayal, loyalty and the human condition.
