Antigone In The World is a production of Sophocles’ tragedy Antigone, performed by a young, international, and ethnically diverse company of actors in unconventional theater spaces—such as townships, refugee camps and prisons. Our mission is to bring classic texts that speak to modern ills to underserved audiences in stressed communities around the world.


Antigone in the World (AITW) will perform for free, for people who may well have never seen a play.

Side by side with the performances in these stressed areas will be dialogue on the issues of the play, created in conjunction with local community organizations, over central ideas of civilization, including the inevitable clash between society’s edicts and the individual’s conscience, the rights of women, and those things due, as matters of basic humanity, to both the living and the dead.

Adapted and directed by Gregory Mosher

Produced by Regina Vorria
