Antigone, September 2003
Antigone by Sophocles was presented in the Seattle Fringe Festival of
September 2003 at the Chamber Theatre on Capitol Hill.
Antigone was directed by Dorothy Cosby with the Ensemble, assistant-
directed by Susie Polnaszek, choreographed by Kari Podgorski, co-
produced by Nicole Pearson (who performed the title role), and stage
managed/ LD'd by Trina Bates.
ANTIGONE is about the struggle between safety and freedom, the
question of patriotism, overcoming our fear of death, and the choices
human beings make in circumstances of violence and war. The story is
both ancient and completely contemporary. Like Rachel Corrie, or any
figure in history who chose love first, safety second, Antigone's action
is boldly taken, and her mission of love in a time of war leads to her
tragic end. A story for our times, questions for our future.
