This play has two many plot lines, one about the ancient Greek soldier Ajax who fought in the Trojan War, and other about a current female soldier in Iraq, AJ. Both warriors are betrayed by those in command, go crazy and kill a bunch of farm animals. There are appearences by Athena, a Greek Chorus, and a bunch of veterans that talk about the war.

I love this play, which my college is performing, because it gets to the heart of the problems of war. It doesn't try to argue about when it's right to

I get the sense that this is a physical, visual piece. A great deal of exploration and rehearsal is required before I quite fall in love with it. But what a fantastic concept, linking that "madness of war" sentiment central to the Ajax story with a very modern (and very much needed) exploration of PTSD, sexual abuse and other issues relevant in the military today.
