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.
