The creators of Antigone in Ferguson wanted to attract people who are not ordinarily attending a production of a Greek play because they wanted to reach out to more current society, to hook people from different perspectives. I think that the reason why they included the police force was to give this particular “show” much more trustworthiness given the fact that there were actually people who know about laws etc. in the staff. Taking a look at the “show” Antigone in Ferguson did in fact change my perspective of it because it showed the connection with the current events happening in today’s day, the issues within the system, and the modern problems that some people might experience.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Class Meetings & Times: in person Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30 – 3:45 PM in Namm 523A
Office Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12 – 1:30 PM. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation via email that you should keep all semester. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email. I suggest you have multiple times in mind, since your schedule may not mesh with mine!
