NIGHT OF ANCIENT TALES- EASTVIEW’S WINTER AND ONE ACT PLAYS
Join us for a Night of Ancient Tales, as Eastview’s Performing Arts Department presents two plays; Antigone and Tales From Odysseus.
Performance dates are February 20, 21, and 22 at 7PM in the Eastview Performing Arts Center. All tickets are general admission and are available at the Box Office starting one hour before showtime. Ticket prices are Adults: $7 and Senior Citizens/Students: $5.
It takes guts to stand up to the most powerful man in the country. Especially when you’re 15. After both of her brothers kill each other in opposing sides of a war, Antigone dares to defy her uncle, King Creon, by burying her ‘traitor’ brother. When Creon discovers that Antigone has performed the burial despite his command, he orders her to be walled up in a cave alive thus starving her to death. Creon does not listen to the pleadings of Ismene, Antigone’s sister, nor his son Haemon, who is engaged to Antigone. Haemon goes to Antigone’s cave, sees that she has hung herself and kills himself as well. Hearing this, his mother also takes her own life at the fateful end of this Greek tragedy.
The Search For Odysseus:
The Search for Odysseus tells the story of the Odyssey, from the point of view of Telemachus, his son. After the Trojan War, Odysseus does not return with the other soldiers, and Telemachus sets out to find him and in so doing embarks on a voyage of self discovery.
