Antigone (David Rush)
by Filigree Theatre

Oct. 12 - Oct. 22, 2023


Sophocles's  classic Greek tragedy follows the aftermath of a civil war between Antigone’s two brothers. David Rush’s vibrant adaptation follows fiercely brave Antigone as she faces an impossible choice and the consequences of her decision. She is forced to choose between honoring the law of the land or the memory of her fallen brother, all under the watchful eye of capricious and vengeful gods.

Directed by Elizabeth V. Newman

The cast features Julia Bennett as Antigone, Courtney DeBerry as Ismene, Beau Paul as Creon, Martinique Duchene-Phillips as Euridice, Bailey Ellis as Haemon, Mike Ooi as Klemos, and Josh Kok as the Scribe & Guard.

The crew includes Kit Brooks as Stage Manager, Patrick Anthony as the Lighting and Set Designer, Johann Solo as Sound Designer, and Liz Tyson as Properties Designer. The show will be costumed by Maddy Lamb.
