CAST

DiMonte Henning*

Sherrick Robinson*

In a notorious maximum-security political prison, two longtime cellmates toil at brutal hard labor by day and by night rehearse Sophocles' ANTIGONE for prison entertainment. When one is unexpectedly granted his release, love and hate, envy and empathy, triumph and loss, and hope and despair all collide in the concentrated atmosphere of their cell as they dig into a two-thousand-year-old play that explores every human's moral obligation to defiance in the face of an unjust government. This modern classic from South Africa's most esteemed playwright celebrates the depths of human resilience and offers a scathing indictment of the injustice of white supremacy.
