Slavoj Žižek’s Antigone

Broom Street Theater is proud to present a World Premiere of a new adaptation of Antigone by the “most dangerous philosopher in the west”, Slavoj Žižek. This non-traditional telling with all female leads, directed by Christopher William Wolter, features masks, movement, and mayhem : an ethical and political intervention into the complexities of desire; a biting commentary on the conflicts between the state and the family, the individual and the collective, love and duty, revolutionary violence and the security of the status quo.

The mostly-female cast features Stacey Garbarski as Antigone, Jamie England as Creon, Maddi Conway as Haemon, Melissa Minkoff as Tiresias, and Clarice Lafayette as Ismene.
