Directed by Rhodessa Jones
Playwright Nambi E. Kelley
Musical Composer Tommy Shepherd

Emerging Chicago playwright Nambi E. Kelley’s contemporary urban adaptation of Sophocles’ tragedy Antigone is an impassioned response to the recent untimely deaths of children in her native city as a result of gang violence, which has risen sharply in the past several years. The production updates the conventions of ancient drama for our contemporary movement. Ensemble singing, rhythmic movement, and musical accompaniment was an essential part of Greek tragedy’s original performance in ancient Athens; similarly, music will provide an urgent musical heartbeat to this stirring depiction of the immense human cost of violence in our cities and in our families.
