5 Minutes to Midnight is a modern retelling of a classic myth. Through original scenes, stories, and poetry written and performed by the members of Stargate Theatre's 2017 Sharon Sullivan Company, this new work explores the bonds between friends and the relationships between fathers and sons.
Stargate Theatre is a project of the Education's Giving Voice initiative, which employs young men with a history of involvement in the justice system to write, rehearse, and perform a theatrical piece that reflects their collective identity and their aspirations, ideas, and fears about themselves and the world. Company members are guided by Stargate's co-artistic directors: Emmy Award winner and playwright Judy Tate and director Stephen DiMenna.
Note: The 7pm performance on Saturday, August 19, can be viewed live by visiting Manhattan Theatre Club's Facebook page.
