This festival includes two world-premiere one-act plays, Squash and Ajax. These two plays will be the final productions at The Flea’s home on White Street, before the company moves to its new facilities four blocks south at 20 Thomas Street.
In Squash, a professor of classic literature finds himself questioning his identity when a student presents an intriguing take on Plato’s Symposium. Boundaries are tested and personal lives are upended as they grapple with sexuality, love, and sport.
In Ajax, an intrepid student adapts Sophocles’ defining war epic to the amusement of his English professor. A passionate ex-actress, the professor quickly finds herself entangled in every aspect of the play –– including the playwright.
Performances begin: July 1, 2023
