Too Much Memory

A contemporary retelling of Antigone

December 2 to December 22, Fourth Street Theatre, NYC

A theatrical explosion of myth and revolution, the widely celebrated Too Much Memory retells the classic Greek story of Antigone and sets it firmly in the present. A timeless drama of family conflict and social turmoil, the play is a contemporary collage of mythology and modernity incorporating texts by Richard Nixon, Tom Hayden, Peter Brook, Anne Carson, Pablo Neruda, Susan Sontag, and Hannah Arendt. A special political forum featuring Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel, Michael Ratner and Kathleen Chalfant will take place after the 5:00 performance on December 6. At the New York Theatre Workshop's Fourth Street Theatre, 83 East 4th Street (between Second Avenue and Bowery). For info and tickets go here.
