Ajax in Iraq
A.R.T. Institute Season
October 9, 2008 through October 11, 2008

How does the experience of war affect the common soldier? What do veterans bring home from war? How are they treated when they return? These are just a few of the questions explored in the world premiere production of this new play by award-winning writer Ellen McLaughlin. Using Sophocles' Ajax as a lens through which to view and interpret the current war, McLaughlin's play combines ancient Greece and modern-day Iraq to grapple with these difficult and perplexing times.
