Antigone is produced by special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences

This production will be performed “promenade” style, in which the audience generally stands and moves amidst the action. There is no formal “stage,” as the space is shared by the actors and audience. Audience members are encouraged to stand and position themselves to watch. Feel free to stand or sit on the risers and floor, except for the painted areas. Please allow the actors to move around the platforms and painted floor areas as acting space. Stool seats are available upon request, and ushers are available to help

Antigone is a tragedy written by Sophocles in the year 441 BCE and is a play about the aftermath of a civil war in which the two sons of Oedipus, Eteocles and Polyneices, kill each other, where the new king and their successor, Creon, tries to punish Polyneices for his disloyalty by not burying him properly.
