Anouilh's Antigone

Presented by Flat Earth Theatre at The BlackBox, Mosesian Center for the Arts, Watertown MA

Mar 16 - 31 2018
Anouilh's Antigone

Based on the Sophocles play of the same name

Tyranny, demagoguery, and absolute power are disrupted in Jean Anouilh’s modern adaptation of Antigone, written in 1940s France as a form of resistance against Nazi occupation. In an act of treason punishable by death, Antigone acts on her moral duty to bury her brother, defying the will of the ruthless King Creon. What transpires is a timeless exploration of when to accept authority in order to maintain the status quo and when to confront it, no matter the consequences.
