"Two Greek masterpieces. In Suppliants, Aeschylus challenges us to witness the emotional cost of exile and, in doing so, helps us to understand a contemporary issue. In some of the most opulent and purely lovely choral odes ever written, he describes the fate of the daughters of Danaus as they beg for asylum in Argos. It was produced at the Gate Theatre in 1998. Ajax describes the madness and death of one of the great Greek heroes of the Trojan wars, having fallen foul of the Gods. "
