Government, God, and Civil Disobedience…
Core is bringing a modern take to an ancient classic for 3 Performances Only!Don’t miss this timeless Greek tale presented in an alternate America reality.
As modern Americans, how easy it is for us to take for granted our collective power! How second nature it is that, through the political process, we have both the right and the responsibility to judge if our leaders are protecting the rights that we ourselves have declared “inalienable. ”
These rights were hard won of a bitter war against tyranny, injustice and oppression. Such rebellions against authority, both governmental and familial, have largely defined world history and propelled literature. Antigone, the archetypal story of a young woman’s anguished quest to bury her fallen brother, resonates no less powerfully now than it did 2,500 years ago. It demands of us, as it did of audiences in antiquity, this fundamental question: what costs are acceptable in the pursuit of justice?
