Production Description

Casting the role of Creon in "Antigone." This piece will be a reinvention of Jean Anouilh's play, combining his beautiful text with movement based vignettes.

The Wandering Theatre Company brings to life Jean Anouilh’s adaptation of the original political thriller ‘Antigone’.

Antigone, the story of a young girl that defies the overwhelming power of the state in pursuit of what is right, has been the subject of debate since 441 BCE. Jean Anouilh’s challenging version, first performed in occupied France in 1944, is reimagined and rebuilt for the 21st century by this promising ensemble. (Wandering Theatre Company winningly reinvents the wheel - DC Metro Theatre Arts)

Transferred to a timeless America; a place both real and imagined, both desired and feared, a nation divided by politics and faith, Wandering Theatre Company explores the question ‘How far is too far when we’re fighting for what we believe.’

Working as a dedicated ensemble with the Viewpoints Technique, Wandering Theatre Company combines text and physical performance to explore both the beauty and horror of Anouilh’s vision. We promise a performance that is striking in its aesthetic, challenging in its delivery and inventive in its interpretation of one of the most powerful stories ever written: a story of courage, conviction and consequence.

Wandering Theatre Company: “Train together…Rehearse together…Perform together…Travel together.”
