The Colgate University Department of Theater is proud to present Antigone.
Directed by April Sweeney. Performed by Colgate students.

Does Sophocles’ ancient trilogy, the Oedipus plays, have anything to teach us today? In an era of economic inequity, social inequality, climate distress, and civil unrest these ancient voices reach across the millennia and the grave to ask, time and time again, “Will you help me? Will you help me lift the body?” Are we destined to play the play for another 2,500 years or might we listen and learn from the chorus, the messenger, the senseless deaths of so many women who have come before and after. Antigone asks of us to remember her name and take action no matter how small.
