This new adaption of Sophocles' ANTIGONE is set in the 1960s mirrors the politics of that period.
Adapted and Directed by Jack Bourgeois
Presented by Cold Basement Dramatics
Set in a fictional 1960's Thebes that closely evokes the same decade of our own country, Antigone is a story of the budding women's rights movement, as well as the story of a man who could not see past tradition and his ingrained sense of honor in order to adapt to changing times. This Greek tragedy, adapted to almost contemporary times, brings a spark of life and rebellion to a story thousands of years old, but still very much relevant to our lives today.
Cold Basement Dramatics bring to you an intimate storefront theatre version of the Greek tragedy. By helping fund this kickstarter you are helping CBD pay for things like programs, posters, the set, costumes, props, lighting equipment and the performance space. We don't expect you to just give us that money though. We are offering some great rewards for your contributions:
$1.00 + Name In Program
