September 14 – 16, 2019 at the World Peace Theatre in Kawasaki

The Antigone team at YTG worked for six months to create this refreshing take on a 2400 year-old classical play by Sophocles. There was a showcase performance in June, 2019 to solicit audience feedback, followed by a mainstage performance in September.

After a terrible civil war, Creon the king has set up an oppressive regime with strict gender roles to keep order among his people. He is opposed by his niece, Antigone, who tries to fight for what she believes is right while her sister, Ismene, lives in fear of the consequences.
