Stonehill Theatre Company to Perform Classic Greek Tragedy “Antigone”

November 6, 2014


The Stonehill Theatre Company’s Fall 2014 mainstage production is a modern adaptation of the classical Greek tragedy, Antigone, written in 1943 by prolific French dramatist Jean Anouilh, who is a two-time Tony Award winner for Best Playwright.

The play, originally written by Sophocles in or before 441 BCE, explores the problem of maintaining integrity in a world based upon compromises. It is a world where decisions are pointless but must be made and only individual integrity has meaning.

Directed by Patricia H. Sankus, Antigone will be performed in Hemingway Theatre on the Stonehill College campus. Performance dates are Thursday, November 20th, Friday, November 21st, and Saturday, November 22nd at 8:00 p.m.

There will be a talk-back with the cast after each performance. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 10th.  Prices are $5 for students/seniors and $8 for general admission.

Please call 508-565-1458 for reservations. Tickets will be sold at the Roche Dining Commons during lunch and dinner.
