WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Nora Theatre Company presents Sophocles' Antigone adapted by Richard McElvain. Daniel Gidron directs. Passion. Politics. Pride. In times of fundamental threats to the security of a nation, at what point does the state's safety take precedence over the individual freedoms and personal consciences of its citizens? When does a government overreach its task? Can a leader admit he is wrong? In this gritty new adaptation of a classic story of a young woman who must follow her own heart and defy the law of the land, the timeless themes and uneasy questions of loyalty, patriotism, and personal morality are illuminated afresh in a vivid contemporary context.
Special Saturday matinee on September 18 at 3:00 PM.
Talk Backs: Join the cast and the playwright for lively post-play discussions following the performances on Thursday, September 23rd and Thursday, September 30th.
