‘Antigone Project: A Play in Five Parts’ Now a Virtual Production April 3

April 1, 2020

A “Read, Rant, Relate” play reading and community discussion of “Antigone Project: A Play in Five Parts” that was originally scheduled last month at the University of Wyoming Art Museum will now be presented as a virtual production Friday, April 3.

The program, sponsored by UW Classics, Relative Theatrics and the UW Art Museum, will be presented on YouTube Live Stream Friday at 7 p.m. The link can be found at www.Facebook.com/RelativeTheatrics. The event is free and open to the public, although some material may not be suitable for all audiences.

The production is in conjunction with the UW Department of Modern and Classical Languages course, “Classical Greek Civilization.” Laura De Lozier, UW Department of Modern and Classical Languages senior lecturer, will lead a discussion following the reading.

Created by Chiori Miyagawa and Sabrina Peck, the play explores how individuals can respond to systemic oppression based on gender, class and race. The playwrights are five multiracial women -- Karen Hartman, Tanya Barfield, Caridad Svich, Lynn Nottage and Miyagawa.

“‘Antigone Project’ creates a theatrical relay through time and space,” says De Lozier.

The production is funded, in part, by grants and support from Think WY, the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research, the Classical Association of the Middle West and South Committee for the Promotion of Latin, and the UW Department of Modern and Classical Languages. “Read, Rant, Relate” is a theatrical-reading program funded, in part, by Wyoming Humanities.
