Ajax In Iraq

From 11/03/2011 to 11/27/2011


Populated with Greek gods and contemporary soldiers returning from Iraq, AJAX IN IRAQ is a mash-up of Sophocles? classic play AJAX and stories from today?s newspaper. Parallel narratives follow Ajax, a Greek warrior, and A.J., a contemporary female soldier on duty in Iraq, both of whom are undone by the betrayal of a commanding officer. The intersection of their stories explodes the timeless struggle in making sense of the madness of war.
