Bristol Community College’s Theatre Program will host a production of Antigone, from Thursday, Feb. 15 to Saturday, Feb. 17, 2024, at 7 p.m., in the Studio Theatre (room H128), at the Jackson Arts Center, on the Bristol Fall River Campus, 777 Elsbree Street.

This will be the first production directed by a Bristol Theatre Program Student. Taylor Corbett will be leading the production while being mentored by program coordinator, David Ledoux.

Brief Synopsis: Antigone faces execution for opposing the king’s decree that her brother remain unburied after he died in battle. This Greek classic feels as fresh and relevant today as it was over two thousand years ago. Antigone explores duties to the state versus family and whether female autonomy is possible in a patriarchal society.

Tickets are General Public: $15; Bristol Faculty/Staff & Non-Bristol Students: $10; Bristol Students: $5; Children under 13: Free. Tickets can be purchased here.
