THEATER OF WAR PRODUCTINOS: ANTIGONE IN FERGUSON
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Both compelling theatre and searing social justice project, Antigone in Ferguson is a radical and unlikely staging of Sophocles’ classic tragedy, conceived in response to the 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Antigone’s themes of integrity and human folly, set down in the fifth century BCE, resonate through the ages, illuminating the recent clash between public authorities and American citizens as they call for justice in police brutality cases. Bryan Doerries, author of The Theater of War: What Ancient Greek Trgedies Can Teach Us Today, directs this timely adaptation. 62 Center
