the summer theatre company for the Texas A & M Department of Performance Studies,

Antigone Arkhe
by Caridad Svich

directed by Evleen Nasir

Antigone Arkhe by Caridad Svich is an innovative interpretation that juxtaposes Sophocles’ Antigone against the background of both a museum and technological recordings of life in a modern war zone. The play collapses time in order to tell the similar stories of Antigone and that of a girl currently living in the Middle East.

Performances: July 1, 3, 8, 10, 15, 17, 2011

The show will be running in repertoire with Theresa Rebeck’s Bad Dates in the Fallout Theatre. Shows will run on alternating nights, Thursday- Saturday, for the first three weekends in July beginning on June 30th at 7:30 pm. There will also be 2:00 pm matinees on all three Sundays. All performances are free and open to the public.
