Marquette Theatre to present ‘Antigone,’ April 16-18, April 23-25

Marquette Theatre will present Antigone, from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m., Friday, April 16, through Sunday, April 18, and again Friday, April 23, through Sunday, April 25.

When faced with the moral dilemma of choosing between her family’s honor and her own life, a young woman forces the audience to consider whether we could summon her courage to do the right thing. Marquette Theatre’s modern re-telling of Antigone — a classic Greek tale from Sophocles — was reimagined by Jean Anouilh to be performed in Nazi-occupied Paris, provoking fierce controversy with its stance of the individual defying the state.

Antigone is the first in-person show of the 2021-21 theatre season.

As a result of COVID-19 precautions, admittance to the shows is limited to the Marquette community — current students and employees — as well as family of the cast. Each cast member is allowed to bring up to two family members to each showing. No other off-campus visitors will be admitted.

Tickets are $12 and are available for purchase online through Marquette Theatre’s online box office service.
