Resistance and Rebellion in Rep

About This Show

Random Access Theatre explores two classic pieces with bold characters who fought against injustice in Resistance and Rebellion in Rep, featuring productions of Ernst Toller’s Hoppla, We’re Alive! and Sophocles’ Antigone. Hoppla, We’re Alive!, directed by artistic director Jennifer Sandella, tells the story of a group of revolutionaries who, eight years after they were pardoned from death row, have found various ways to adapt to the unchanged world they once rebelled against. Politics, friendship, and conscience collide in this German play that shook up the theater world when it premiered in the 1920s. Then, revisit Antigone, the beloved story of Oedipus’ courageous daughter. This modern retelling, adapted and directed by Victoria Teague, examines how a Greek tragedy fits into contemporary society, and whether you would actually be surprised to hear such a story on the nightly news today.
