Sideshow Theatre Company presents


by Sophokles
freely translated by Anne Carson
directed by Jonathan L. Green

MARCH 1 – APRIL 5, 2015
Richard Christiansen Theater

Ancient Greece looks suspiciously similar to the present day in the hands of world-renowned poet and MacArthur Genius Anne Carson (The Autobiography of Red). Antigone has lost two brothers but by law can only bury one. She takes a stand for her beliefs, pitting morality against patriotism, and in doing so starts a series of events that threaten the new-found national peace. It’s one of the most famous myths of all, told and re-told for more than two thousand years, but what use is a cautionary tale if no one heeds it? With a large cast and the creative team behind Sideshow’s Idomeneus, Carson’s biting and thrilling free translation brings Antigone to new light and casts unexpected shadows on issues of loyalty and family.
