Antigone by Jean Anouilh
WHAT: Antigone by Jean Anouilh
Anchored in the beginning and end by a traditional Chorus, played by sophomore Curt Munsey, the story of Antigone centers on the main character's choice between right and wrong. Antigone, played by sophomore Jenny Godehn, confronts King Creon, played by sophomore James Adomian, when he does not allow her brother’s body to be buried, as the gods require.
The story, directed by JR Luker, also features freshman Gabriel Cullen as Heamon, Creon's son-to whom Antigone is engaged-and sophomore Lauren Tyers as Ismene, Antigone's sister.
