AJAX IN IRAQ is a hybrid between ancient Greek theatre set during the Trojan War and the modern-day experiences of U.S. soldiers during the last war in Iraq. The play follows the parallel narratives of Ajax, an ancient Greek military hero, and A.J., a modern female American soldier, both undone by the betrayal of a commanding officer. Inspired by material collected from interviews with Iraq war veterans and their families, Ajax In Iraq focuses mainly on the psychological pressures that all soldiers face in combat situations, regardless of the time period, with the ultimate aim of bringing this awareness to our audiences and promoting dialogue particularly around mental health issues such as P.T.S.D.
*Because of the mature content of this play, (Mental Health issues, Strong language, sexual abuse), it is recommended that children under the age of 14 do NOT attend.
