Brecht’s Antigone, originally written in German and translated by Judith Malina, dramatizes the choice one woman must make to obey the law or follow her truth. When both her brothers are killed in battle, one is buried with hero’s honors while the other is marked a traitor to the state and left unburied. By burying her brother, Antigone risks her life to do what is right. This fresh take on a powerful tale of resistance will be performed under the stars, as the Greeks originally experienced it.

Music @ Play
Love—connecting, misconnecting, disconnecting, and reconnecting—is the most popular subject in Western drama, and it forms the common theme of Music at Play. From Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet to Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, this program compares and contrasts the conventions and construction of spoken drama and musical drama through an examination of several scenes from plays, cabaret style. Through performance and commentary, Clayton State students help audiences learn more about how the interaction of music and drama can affect and alter both art forms.

Waiting for Godot
By Samuel Beckett
Waiting for Godot finds its heartbeat in the anticipation of someone or something that never arrives. The play resonates with the pain and frustration of the families of Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, and countless others who wait on justice for their loved ones that never seems to arrive. Each decision returns with no indictment, not even a trial, to determine the truth. What if Godot is Justice?
