People’s World

“In every way Ajax in Iraq is a consummate collective victory by the Not Man Apart Physical Theatre Ensemble.”

“Not Man Apart, with its shocking, powerful production of Ajax in Iraq, would make Sophocles proud.”

Night-Tinted Glasses

“Any answers–if there are answers–must come from us.  “Ajax in Iraq” asks the questions, in such a way as we feel compelled to look for an answer.  Which is what theatre does at its very very best.”

Paul Myrvold’s Theatre Notes

“A superb piece of theatre…timely and potent.”

Joe Straw #9

“If you get a chance to see it…run, run, run, and take a vet.”
