A response to Sophocles' classical tragedy Ajax as filtered through personal family history, the classical trope of the “fallen hero” is both meditated on and subverted through the eyes of a pre-teen girl as she and her mother attempt to navigate a tragic loss, both together and apart. Told through a series of conversations and songs, the play considers the mythic and mundane elements of girlhood and family.

Hanna Lea Novak is a playwright and performer originally from Toronto, Canada now living in New York City. She has worked on numerous projects with Tina Satter/Half Straddle, as well as with Elevator Repair Service, Mike Iveson, minor theater, Cori Kresge and Liz Magic Laser. She has performed in plays by Julia Jarcho and Marianna Ellenberg. Hanna recently graduated with an MFA in Playwriting from Hunter College, where she received the Irving Zarkower Award for "Best New Play of the Year" for her full-length play The Knights.
