In a new translation by Charles Connaghan
Directed by Sarah Benson
A poignant examination of how war affects the mind of a solider, Sophocles’s tragedy speaks directly to our times. Second only to Achilles in greatness and strength, the legendary Greek warrior Ajax struggles under the weight of psychological and physical injuries, trying to maintain his dignity, identity, and honor. Director Sarah Benson brings the voice of the community to this production, exploring the relationships between soldiers and civilians.
