A modern retelling of the defiant heroine. Born into a world that doesn’t love her, Antigone is destined for a painful fate. Antigone (born against.) blurs the line between the ancient and the contemporary as it gives voice to the unending struggle between political necessity and morality. Classical figures become recognizable in this clash of justice against racial discrimination that is both timeless and horrifically timely. Featuring Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati’s 2016-2017 Professional Acting Apprentice Company.
