Ajax
by Sophocles

We would like to inform you that the performances on Friday 30/7/2021 and Saturday 31/7/21 will start at 21:00 instead of 22:30 

A defeated antihero plays backgammon. Sophocles’ Ajax, an iconic personification of the frustrated male, is re-imagined in an outdoors snack bar, the decadent reflection of a country stuck in the past, while everything else around it has collapsed. A stellar cast of performers jointly compose a chorus about a transforming world and its ever-changing values. A play dedicated to the prototypical outsider, the socially isolated Ajax, who is doomed to extinction and faced with madness.

With English surtitles.

Greek surtitles on opening night.
