By: Sophocles
Adapted by: Zora Howard

December 9 - December 12, 2021

Show Description:

The body of a Black boy lies mangled in the street, unburied in accordance with official edict. The people of the city avert their eyes, turning instead to a new leader who vows to restore order at any cost. But when one girl cannot look away, she breaks faith with everything she has known in order to set things right. An investigation of moral imperative, this daring new adaptation of Antigone by Pulitzer finalist Zora Howard boldly confronts the struggle between collective duty and individual consequence.
