A musical adaptation of Antigone
Book by Michael Allen Aguirre
Music by Kyle C. Norris
A co-production with Access Theater
Set in a brutal land now in ruins, ghosts of the dead walk amongst the living, reflecting and regretting the endless cycle of destruction they have witnessed. With little hope and no time left, a young woman attempts to confront her past in order to salvage what life is left. REX weaves new music and ancient storytelling into a tale about regret and change.
REX is a continuation of NLTP’s adaptation of The Oedipus Project, our inaugural production in the summer of 2013. A condensed version of Antigone won the 2013 Theatre Now Soundbites Festival for Best Original Music.
