I think the creators of Antigone in Ferguson wanted to attract people who would not ordinarily attend a production of a Greek play to have more people speak about more about Ferguson. They also wanted to show the reality of harsh laws and possibly police brutality but from a different perspective. I think they included people from the police force to make the play more modernized and to have a better understanding of how society is today. Watching Antigone in Ferguson helped me better understand the original play. I felt that it was normalized during the time of the play for kings to be as strict as Creon but watching this play made me realize that it shouldn’t be normalized no matter the time period.
