Ellen McLaughlin's new play, Ajax in Iraq, is set to premiere in the Zero Arrow Theatre at American Repertory Theatre (ART), October 9-11.

Created through a series of workshops with the ART Institute for Advanced Theatre Training class of 2009, McLaughlin uses Sophocles' Ajax to view and interpret the current war, combining ancient Greece and modern-day Iraq to explore a veteran's madness and suicide.

McLaughlin is best to known for originating the part of the Angel in Tony Kushner's Angels in America. Her plays include Days and Nights Within, A Narrow Bed, Infinity's House, Iphigenia and Other Daughters, Tongue of a Bird, The Trojan Women, Helen, The Persians, and Oedipus.
