Macaulay Honors College hosts a special virtual presentation of Antigone in Ferguson, staged by innovative company Theater of War Productions. This groundbreaking adaptation fuses dramatic readings by acclaimed actors with live choral music. A choir consisting of activists, youth, teachers, police officers, and concerned citizens from St. Louis, Missouri and New York City catapult the classic Greek tragedy into our fraught modern times.
The Antigone in Ferguson experience culminates in a powerful, healing discussion about race and social justice.
