Theatrical Mining Company Presents Greek Tragedy ANTIGONE
Written around 442 BC, during the golden age of Athens, Antigone is one of the earliest plays written by Sophocles. The climactic play in his "Theban Trilogy," Antigone is set entirely outside the palace gates of Thebes in ancient Greece. It depicts the courage of a young woman, defying the tyrannical rule of Creon, her uncle, and her choice of the family loyalty to her brother, even though it would likely lead to her death. Antigone and its message are as relevant today as they were in 442 BCE. The cast includes: Senetra Butler, Carolyn Chisal, Peggy Friedman, William Hawthorn, Logan James, Valerie Lewis, Richard Peck, Evere Stith, Vanessa Quinlivan, Billie Taylor and Adam Zoellner.
Theatrical Mining Company was founded in the summer of 2006 by Barry Feinstein (Artistic Director), along with Roger Marshall and Terry Kenney. TMC favors plays, which make a strong statement about the human condition and embrace controversial subjects. TMC believes that the purpose of theatre is to inspire the audience to think about and discuss the subject matter presented, and of course, to enjoy some laughter along the way.
