Theatre studio presentation: "The Greeks" by Sophocles
Mar 18, 2014 to Mar 21, 2014
In a world divided, one girl defies a nation to fulfill the destiny of the gods. A simple burial sets the scene for one of the greatest tragedies in the history of our theatrical narrative.
This new adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone is directed by MFA candidate Autumn Smith. Edward Gorey meets European cabaret as Antigone struggles for justice utilizing her childish animation to fuel the other characters' intentions and ultimate outcomes.
Oedipus at Colonus
Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus follows the blind fugitive Oedipus and his faithful daughters Antigone and Ismene to the small town of Colonus, where his arrival arouses the suspicions of the locals.
Drawing on the wary wildness of the western frontier, Oedipus at Colonus, directed by MFA candidate Estelle Shook, explores what happens when an outlaw is called to account for his crimes.
Both shows are performed by members of the Graduate Acting class.
Tues. March 18, 7pm
