2020/21 Production Season
Ajax: The Wounds of War
Directed by Caroline Good
For the past twenty years, since 9/11, so many of our modern warriors have come home from Afghanistan and Iraq with more than just outward scars, but dealing with the internal wounds of PTSD. This contemporary interpretation of Sophocles’ powerful ancient Greek play centers on a once great warrior stripped of his honor and driven to his untimely death by those scars.
This production will take place in the Theta Gardens located within the Green Center for the Performing Arts. All attendees will be required to wear masks throughout the performance.
Trigger warning: This production makes use of prop firearms.
The production will be streamed at 3 pm on Sunday, May 9 via the School of Music YouTube page. Link coming soon.
