People's Light & Theatre will host Theater of War Productions, a social impact company that presents readings of ancient Greek plays, with two readings of Sophocles' Ajax on Monday, October 17th and Monday, November 28th at 7pm on the Main Stage. People's Light's Artistic Director Abigail Adams directs. Company Member David Bradley will facilitate a discussion afterwards.
Ajax tells the story of a fierce warrior who slips into a depression near the end of the Trojan War, attempts to murder his commanding officers, fails, and takes his own life. It is also the story of how Ajax's wife and troops attempt to intervene before it's too late.
