MiraCosta College Theatre Presents Antigone

The MiraCosta College Theatre Department presents Antigone by Sophocles. Directed by Gerilyn Brault. Translation by Diane J. Rayor, written specifically with the college-aged student in mind, providing a clear and modern version of the text.

This ancient Greek tragedy was written in 441 BC and its themes of gender, power, the individual versus the state continue to be relevant today. “All of these issues have been especially present in recent years, which is why I set our production in an authoritarian version of modern America,” reveals Brault. “Through that lens, my design team and I created a looming structure on our stage that is reminiscent of the grand scale of both the ancient Greeks and our own National Mall in D.C., with scaffolding and graffiti everywhere to help emphasize a time of political turmoil for this story.”

MiraCosta’s production strives to be different with a modern setting and heightened movement from the actors. Brault continues, “this style of performance work is not often seen in theatre, and our unique design and staging has certainly made this show a ‘must see’.”

MiraCosta College Theatre Department presents Antigone from November 11-21. Tickets are $10 for all performances and can be purchased at miracosta.edu/buytix

Seating is limited and reservations are required. All attendees of the theatre production must show a vaccine card providing proof of full vaccination against Covid-19. Masking is required and no one under the age of 12 will be admitted.
