Our final FREE SHOW of the 2019 Summer Rep! Masterfully performed by Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao, this beautiful adaptation of the ancient Greek poet Homer’s epic story of Achilles and Hector turns an epic celebration of battle into a haunting reminder of war’s human cost.
One of the seven surviving plays by ancient Greek playwright Sophocles, Ajax tells the story of the tragic fate of a heroic warrior after he returns from war. A beautiful new translation by Bryan Doerries, directed by Sylvia Center’s Shu-Ling Hergenhahn-Zhao.
The opening reception for Sylvia Center’s 2019 Summer Rep will be held before and after the June 27 opening night performance of AJAX, featuring live music, complimentary pre-show champagne, and post-show refreshments in celebration of all five shows in the Summer Rep and the 50-plus actors and creative staff bringing them to life!
An original play written by Artistic Director Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao based on stories in The Iliad, and first mounted at iDiOM Theater back in 2012, this quirky black comedy is suitable for all ages (but does tell tales of violence and features at least one beating with a loaf of bread).
