A tenured teacher with opinions all his own. A young, Jewish student with challenging beliefs. A battle over communal obligation and private conscience. In this funny and thought-provoking play, Gurney, with his trademark rich dialogue and sly wit, explores University life from both sides and raises many questions about Antisemitism, academic integrity and the tradeoff between classical education and job placement (to name just a few).
Another Antigone runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm from Friday, January 23 through Sunday, February 8 at The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre, in the Baird Center at 619 South Main Street in Gainesville. There will be a half-price preview performance on Thursday, January 22.
