Ajax in Iraq
by Texas State University

Oct. 31 - Nov. 06, 2016
All week

Texas State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance is proudly presenting Ajax in Iraq by Ellen McLaughlin. The show will be directed by graduate student Rocky Hopson, Oct. 31 - Nov. 6 in the Theatre Center Mainstage.


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 interviews with Iraq war veterans and their families, Ajax in Iraq explores the timeless struggle soldiers face in trying to make sense of war.
