The Program

The Setting

An American university during the latter half of the spring term in 1983, at the height of the nuclear arms race.

Another Antigone

was first produced in March 1987 at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego, California.
The play opened at Playwrights Horizons in New York City in January, 1988 and is dedicated by the playwright to John Tillinger.

Production Notes

Director's Notes

Reagan was in the White House. Educational standards in the United States were at an all time low. With the build up of U.S. and Soviet nuclear weapons at home and abroad, the threat of nuclear war was at an all time high. Outcry and public protests were commonplace in both Europe and here in America. This was the world in 1983, and the world of this play.

Fortunately, as Dean Eberhart mentions in the play, "Times change." But sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Many of the issues that Another Antigone presents are still with us today. Recent WTO events in Seattle, our own city or "polis" remind us of the timeless struggle between unyielding civil authority and rebellious individual expression. Gurney's modern re-invention of the Antigone myth still resonates today, as does Sophocles' classic which was written over two millenniums ago.

--David Hsieh, Director of Another Antigone
