The St. Catherine’s drama club is struggling to put up its first school play – Sophocles’ Antigone. As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must then figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing the classic play about impossibly difficult choices. What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?
Commissioned by the Alliance Theatre for their Teen Ensemble Arts program.
