The St. Catherine's drama club is struggling to put up its first school play—Sophocles' Antigone. As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing the classic play about impossibly difficult choices. What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?

Commissioned by the Alliance Theatre for their Teen Ensemble program, premiered at the Alliance Hertz Stage in April, 2015.

    Theatre transforms and empowers and, thankfully, disempowers those who would abuse their power. Well done.

    I saw the Virtual Sacred Fools production of this play, and I was fully invested right from the start. This is a new and exciting play within a play that explores urgent issues.

    Brilliant work! Each of the students is well crafted and this is a great script for a female ensemble. I was captivated by each girls' response to the situation, especially Susan's and how it relates to Creon. The tension of the last scene is explosive. Hope to catch this one live!
