Evan Webber & Frank Cox O’Connell
Tiger Dublin Fringe - Ajax and Little Iliad - Evan Webber & Frank Cox-O’Connell
2010 Best Production nominees return to Dublin.
Two 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 PTSD 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, Tiger Dublin Fringe, Project Arts Centre and Theatre Forum. Touring support from Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council.
