“The once-magnificent world is in a state of rage. War. Police violence. Terrorist threats. Demagogues. Thebes is now a ruin surrounded by refugee camps. And Antigone X could be any of us who dares to stand up to unjust laws and demand, instead, the higher power of tolerance and decency. A contemporary meditation on love, power, and war–based on the classic by Sophocles–by Los Angeles-based writer Paula Cizmar.”
Antigone X: multimedia variations on a 21st-century view of the classical play is now published, with a wonderful introduction by director Jeff Janisheski and a stunning cover design by Jonathan Torres. NoPassport Press did a beautiful job on this book, and it’s a thrill to see the original cast members’ names in print. Available on Amazon.
