These two one-act plays by Evan Webber and Frank Cox-O’Connell set out to re-define ‘theatre of war’. In Little Iliad, the narrative is played out as a Skype conversation between characters called Evan and Thom, the latter about to ship out from Kingston to Afghanistan. In Ajax, the actors portray ancient Greek soldiers attending a performing of Sophocles.

Limited to just 30 seats per show, with a pair of headphones for each audience member, this is contemporary performance at its most topical, personal, immediate and intimate.

“A profound and poignant synthesis of art and war.” – Irish Theatre magazine
