Ancient warfare feels disturbingly modern
This reimagining of Sophocles’s Ajax was developed in conjunction with interviews from current and former servicemen and women. The classic epic is full of heroism, love, and homeland. These themes are dropped in the lap of modern times, passionately performed by Olivier Award-winner Joe Dixon. As the mind of the legendary leader begins to spiral, the set becomes a nightmarish place filled with visions, voices, and flashbacks that have as much place in modern warfare as Greek myth. Also starring Edinburgh Comedy Award-winner Adam Riches and Fresh Meat star Gemma Chan. General admission, unreserved seating.
"Sharp, witty, and intelligent...a towering performance by Joe Dixon."
