Antigone: A Tragedy
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. 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.
**All performances are cancelled for the rest of the semester. Stay tuned for upcoming information regarding our Fall 2020 productions. **
A person committed to the study of theater within the framework of a liberal education must be prepared to work toward two goals: first, a thorough competence in the basic skill of dramatic expression and interpretation; and concurrently, a view that comprehends dramatic art as it relates to, expresses, and extends the surrounding culture.
