This project is called “Anti-Gone Wrong: An Adaptation of an Adaptation of Adaptation of Sophocles’s Adaptation of Antigone” or just “Anti-Gone Wrong” for short.

The text, written by Barry Berryhill (“Random Thoughts and Unfinished Songs”) based on an idea by Michael Verderber, is a random goofball “speedy” version of the epic tragedy by Sophocles. The play will be directed by O’ Ryan White (“Mimeumentary”) and Stage Managed by Luis Zaragosa (“Heart and Stole”, “Into Hell”).

The original “Antigone” is based on the familial struggle between newly crowned ruler of Thebes, Creon, with his niece Antigone over whether they should give her brother (who happened to be a major enemy to Thebes) a proper burial.

“Anti-Gone Wrong” is a street-theatre style play-within-a-play  featuring two bumbling actors trying their best (which is actually their worst) at staging “Antigone.”

Performance dates are June 28 and 29 at the Blue Room in Fore Hall at Texas A&M Univ- Kingsville.  FREE admission.
