Antigone Now, by Melissa Cooper

Freeport High School presents their Fall Play: Antigone Now, by Melissa Cooper

“Theatre artists have been wearing masks since 400BC, so why can’t we?” – Natalie Safley, FHS Theatre Arts Director

Playscripts, Inc., describes this adaptation as a “…contemporary response to the myth of Antigone…” Antigone (played by FHS junior, Ella Vertenten) strives to bury her brother, Polyneices, with honor, defying a decree from the king (who also happens to be her uncle) that, “No one may bury him, no one may touch him. It’s against the law.” Drama ensues as the characters fight to preserve the laws of the city while keeping the family intact.

  • All performances outside adjacent from the entrance to the Joan Benoit Samuelson Stadium
  • All tickets must be purchased in advance
