Antigone in the World

Antigone in the World


Directed by Peter Romano

Antigone in the World, a production of Sophocles’ tragedy performed by a young, international, and ethnically diverse company of actors in unconventional theater spaces. The play was performed in over a dozen Miami-Dade County public high schools.

Every private paid performance of Antigone provided the opportunity for two school performances. The flexible production took place in the intimacy of homes, work, or outdoor venues. Duration: 50 minutes with an optional 15-minute Q&A session.

​This free touring production was performed exclusively for Miami-Dade Public School students and at free community spaces (Lummus Park & Design District). It served 5800 students from 20 schools with 31 performances.

School Testimonials

“One student said at the conclusion of the performance that he, "was hungering for more!”

Young Men’s Preparatory Academy

“My AP Lit teacher said that the students couldn't stop talking about the performance when they got back to the classroom. Since he was only going to take one class, he decided to take the next period as well. My creative writing students loved it as well. Seeing the diversity of the performers and how amazing the lead performer was as Antigone really inspired them to begin our play-writing unit.”

TERRA Environmental Research Institute

“Despite our student's disabilities, the actors' ability to touch the hearts of our students was beautiful to watch.”
