Antigone
A New Translation of Sophocles
By Sarah Sharp with Greg Taubman

and

Progeny
By Greg Taubman

Two millennia ago: a king struggles to reunify his city while a princess's dissent threatens to reopen the wounds of civil war. To whom do the dead belong?

Today: a governor announces a new stance on abortion, only to find his niece staging a hunger strike in protest. Who decides when life begins?

Rehearsed and performed in repertory, these two plays provide a one-of-a-kind reckoning with the costs of certainty and the continued resonance of the original story of nonviolent protest.
