The Antigone Play is not a translation, as Tig is not Antigone. A Zoom play is not a staged performance, as it is not onstage. But as time and pressures continue to build, Antigone finds mysterious ways to defy these laws. Antigone will always defy man’s laws. Antigone’s absoluteism and pride in her righteousness is an energy that sears through time. Antigone never hesitates. Antigone never flinches. Antigone will always find the Indestructable Answer. We’re placing a hat on a hat when we talk about unprecedented and uncertain times, but Antigone has survived destructions of empires to come into my hands. So too has theatre survived plagues before to come to this moment online. Life – theatre – Antigone – finds a way. When the clouds roll in, I always turn to Antigone, which everytime, teaches me something new about family, about virtue, about compassion, about grief, about keeping on. No matter what. My deepest thanks to David, Chloe, Sienna, Sara, Araceli, César, Mya, Tamara, Felix, Rachel, Hasib, Sepehr, Wasifa, Cathy, Matt, and of course Marlis and the whole Theatre @ York team who have all collectively breathed so much joy, passion, and life into this project during uncertain times, and continuing to inspire everyone through that unspeakable magic of live performance.
