Ajax in Iraq
by Ellen McLaughlin
Past and present collide in Ellen McLaughlin’s mash-up of Sophocles’ classic tragedy Ajax with the modern-day war in Iraq. Inspired by material collected from interviews with Iraq war veterans and their families, Ajax in Iraq explores the timeless struggle soldiers face in trying to make sense of war.
Ajax in Iraq was made possible through a Pauli Murray College CPA Grant, Theatre and Performance Studies Senior Project funds, and generous donations from the Yale Macmillan Center Council on Middle East Studies, the English Department, and the Women’s Center.
