Antigone

VPAR Events - Sun, 11/22/2015 - 2:00pm
Synopsis – Thebes is under attack. In a bloody battle outside the city’s gates, the sons of Oedipus fight to the death. King Creon issues an edict: Eteocles, who nobly defended Thebes against his brother and the invading army, is to be buried a hero; the body of his treacherous brother must be left to rot. Antigone and her uncle are locked in conflict. With no burial rites, Antigone knows that her brother Polynices’ soul will be denied passage to the underworld and the gods will be offended. As the new king, Creon cannot ignore her actions – her defiance is a matter of national security.

Student Admission is Free / $5 for Public.

This is a cultural activity credit event.

Our House

VPAR Events - Sun, 11/08/2015 - 2:00pm

Are news and entertainment interchangeable? A TV bigshot faced with dwindling ratings installs America’s favorite news anchor as host of a popular reality show. Meanwhile, in Middle America, a houseful of roommates bickers over high-stakes real-world conflicts: Merv doesn’t clean the bathroom. Someone ate Alice’s yogurt. And the rent is long past due. When reality collides with reality TV, we find ourselves front and center in a drama that holds the nation riveted. Our House is a deliciously scathing new comedy that takes on a media-obsessed culture intent on turning even the most sobering crisis into sexy entertainment. A darkly comic look at America’s obsession with “reality” television.

Tickets – Free for Students / $5 for Public
