From Media Release: 
'...unearths the power of ritual in a shattered community.
'Antigone / has always been a respected member of her community but in civil war all bets are off. She suddenly finds herself on the outside looking in. 'Everyone has a right to bury their dead. Everyone has a right to give their loved ones a dignified resting place. Yet when the community leaders decide that they need to set an example, they deny Antigone her right to mourn. Faced with the prospect of unresolved grief, she rebels against everything she knows. Her fate is mandated: either fall in line or be outcast forever.
'Starring Emily Milledge, Adena Jacobs’ intoxicating re-interpretation of Sophocles’ timeless tragedy isn’t afraid to get its hands dirty as it / unearths the power of ritual in a shattered community.'
