The creators of Antigone in Ferguson wanted to attract people who would not ordinarily attend a production of a Greek play. This was important to them because they wanted everyone to have exposure to this issue that is occurring in our modern area. I believe they added people from the police so they can expand the audience to not just citizens but the authority as well. Watching Antigone in Ferguson definitely changed my opinion on the play as a whole because It shows how a very old Greek play can still have relevance in the 21st century.
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!
