Ajax and Little Iliad
As part of the Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival Evan Webber and Frank Cox-O’Connell will bringing their new play Ajax and Little Iliad to the Peacock stage of the Abbey Theatre for five nights.
The artists were nominated in 2010 for Fringe Best Production for two intimate plays about the relationship between artists and soldiers, about art and war as connected modes of cultural production. Mixing the apparatus of Sophocles' Trojan War tragedies and contemporary Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder therapy, EW&FCO examine the reasons people go to war and consider the cost of coming back.
“Stimulating... Cleverly written and delightfully played and the technical realization is superb.” — The National Post “A profound and poignant synthesis of art and war.” — Irish Theatre Magazine Co-produced by Harbourfront Centre World Stage (Toronto) in association with The Banff Centre and Cork Midsummer Festival.
Ajax was developed at MAKE, a residential workshop facilitated by Cork Midsummer Festival, Project Arts Centre, Theatre Forum and Tiger Dublin Fringe.
