Adams presents Antigone

Tickets are now on sale for the Adams High School fall play, Antigone.

Antigone is based on the Greek tragedy written by Sophocles in the fifth century B.C.E. It tells the story of Antigone, the daughter of Oedipus, and her struggle between her civil duty and her loyalty to family. When Antigone’s brother, Polyneices, is slain, Creon proclaims that his body must remain unburied because Polyneices died in rebellion against the state. Antigone, intent on honoring her brother, protests the proclamation and buries Polyneices. The play is a mix of comedy, tragedy, moral values and, of course, loss. Set in a neo-industrial mythical location, it is compelling and recommended for ages 12 and up.

Show nights are Thursday, November 3, Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for students/seniors or $10 for adults at the door. Tickets may be purchased in the Adams main office during school hours, in the cafeteria Mondays and Wednesdays or on line at the ticket link of
