Antigone Now by Mellisa Cooper, presented by the HAST Theater of the Hammond Academy of Science and Technology.

It’s been a year of Antigone - she found out her mom is also her grandma, her king father killed the old king who was his own father, her brothers killed each other in a civil war, and she’s had many mental breakdowns leading to hopitalizations, rehab, and arrests. But now, her new king and uncle, Creon, has forbid her from burying her brother, Polyneices. And you thought your family was complicated...

Will Antigone defy her uncle and the law to bury her brother? Is she willing to die for it? Will her sister, Ismene, help her? Find out in this modern interpretation of Sophocles’s “Antigone”!

“Antigone Now” is written by Melissa Cooper and will be performed by students of Hammond Academy of Science and Technology under the direction of Therese Hartz and Lindsey McDermott. Performances will take place at Beatniks on Conkey in Hammond in cooperation with Hammond Community Theater.
