March 28 – April 5, 2020
Translated by Teresa Danze
Adapted and directed by Kyle Lemieux
The University of Dallas Drama Department is proud to present the world premiere of Antigone: A Tragedy this spring opening March 28th with performance continuing through April 5th at the Drama Building. Working from a brand new translation by Assistant Prof. of Classics, Dr. Teresa Danze and adapted by Associate Prof. of Drama, Kyle Lemieux and Dr. Danze, Antigone: A Tragedy reframes the extant Theban plays through the lens of the seminal character of Antigone. Featuring immersive staging, which places the audience right within the story, this new version follows Antigone as she witnesses the destruction of her family and finally must come to face her own Fate. Antigone: A Tragedy poses enduring questions of fate, identity, and free will that remain urgent and alive for us today.
Tickets will be available mid-March.
