Redtwist Theatre Announces Antigone
Redtwist Theatre’s next production is Antigone, adapted by Anne Carson and directed by Christine Freije, June 23 – July 31. This take on Sophocles’ classic showcases a story of a woman suddenly pitted against the world. She simply wants to give her brother a fair burial and isn’t afraid to fight the patriarchy to do it. In this colloquial, light-fingered and cutting translation of one of Sophocles’ great tragedies, Antigone places personal allegiance before an unjust city law, a tenacious act that ultimately triggers others into a cycle of destruction.
Performances will take place at Redtwist Theatre, 1044 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. Previews are Thursday, June 23 – Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 p.m. The performance schedule is Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
Ticket prices are $15, previews; $35, Thursday – Sunday performances are $40. Student and senior discounts are available. All tickets are now on sale at RedtiwstTheatre.org or by calling 773.728.7529.
