The Tabor College theater department will present the spring production of “Another Antigone,” scheduled for April 26 and 28.
The show spotlights a seasoned college professor, Henry Harper, who will be played by Chris Dick, Tabor’s own professor of English.
After years of teaching literary classics at a New England university, Harper is not surprised by much, and particularly not by students who want to rewrite Greek masterpieces to reflect current sociopolitical concerns.
So when Judy Miller, a gifted student played by Ashley Bird, announces she intends to submit an updated version of Sophocles’s “Antigone” in place of the formal paper he has assigned, Harper is adamant in his refusal. Judy, who needs the credit from Harper’s course to graduate, is as stubborn as her professor.
David Appleton, Judy’s boyfriend, will be played by Nolan Dirks; Maria Loewen will play Diana Eberhart, the academic dean of the humanities department.
Performances will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 26, and Saturday, April 28, in the Tabor College Theater Lab located in the lower level of the Lohrenz Building.
