Classic Greek Tragedy, Antigone, Transplanted To An Irish Catholic Backdrop For Limited Run Starting July 8th At The Secret Theatre

Long Island City, NY – July 7-17, 2016,

Swiftly Tilting Theatre Project, Inc. presents a modern adaptation of ANTIGONE by Sophocles, set in the Irish countryside, adapted and directed by Becca C. Kidwell at The Secret Theatre.

Ms. Kidwell’s modern adaptation travels to Ireland where Antigone’s brother Polyneices is denied burial based on Creon’s interpretation of Roman Catholic law. Antigone is determined that her brother’s passing will be celebrated with dignity despite the consequences for herself. Modern language and Biblical text dare the characters and audience to balance love, mercy, justice, honor, and truth. Read more “Antigone Press Release”
