By Jen Silverman (Adapted from Sophocles)
Directed by Professor Kristin Horton
Dates to be determined
Following a bloody civil war, newly anointed king Creon announces an edict prohibiting the burial of the rebel Polyneices. Antigone, Polyneices' sister, refuses to accept the edict and, in defiance, plans to bury the body. The play follows the conflict between Antigone and Creon, touching the lives of many in the war-torn city of Thebes. Silverman's new adaptation illuminates Sophocles' questions about the individual's role in society, allegiance and leadership, and the struggle for direction in the wake of civil war.
The production features Gallatin undergraduate students:
Annabelle Attanasio, Tommy Craven, Sam Lubin, Emma Schlamme, Katie Rose Summerfield, Ashley Thaxton, Mike Walsh and Jorge Zárate Rodriguez.
