"The Antigone Project: A Play in Five Parts" at the Emerson Tufte Center

The Antigone Project: A Play in Five Parts reconsiders the classic Antigone story from a variety of rich and radical perspectives of race, class and gender. Five award-winning female playwrights bring five very different explorations of Sophocles’ tragedy to life: Karen Hartman, Tanya Barfield, Caridad Svich, Lynn Nottage, and Chiori Miyagawa.

With such settings as World War I, a modern African Village, and the underworld of Hades, we see a sister's love and devotion through many lenses in a work that The New York Times lauded as “engaging, seductive and wildly divergent.” This is a unique addition to contemporary drama.
