Annual Spring Play Set
For May 16 and 17
The annual spring play, Antigone, has been rescheduled for May
16 and 17. It is under the direction of Dean Benjamin Lane. Antigone,
by Jean Anouilh, is a modern adaptation of iSophocles' famed Theban
tragedy. This ancient Greek drama of love, strife, pain, and passion
will be presented in a universally digestible manner with modern cos
tumes and dialogue, while retaining its original classic grandeur.
The Behrend Players will at
tempt to enhance the dramatic
qualities of this presentation with
the use of the circular "island"
stage, in which the audience com
pletely surrounds the performers.
Special lighting and effects will
also be employed.
Tickets for Antigone will be
available at the time of this pub-
