Antigone in Ferguson was conceived in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in 2014, through a collaboration between Theater of War Productions and community members from Ferguson, MO.

Translated and directed by Bryan Doerries and composed by Phil Woodmore, the project fuses a dramatic reading by leading actors of excerpts from Sophocles’ Greek tragedy with live choral music performed by a choir of activists, police officers, youth, and concerned citizens from Ferguson and New York City.

The performance is the catalyst for panel and audience-driven discussions on race and social justice, the core component of the event. This multifaceted production will offer a glimpse not only into the effects of the tragedy in Brown’s local community, but also the trauma of police violence and racial injustice in communities of color in New York and across the nation.

Antigone in Ferguson will feature a rotating roster of actors, including Chris Noth, currently Off-Broadway in The Mother, and BillionsObi Abili, both of whom performed in Antigone in Ferguson at Harlem Stage. Other actors slated to perform include Paul Giamatti (Billions), David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck), Amy Ryan (The Wire), Josh Hamilton (Eighth Grade), Linda Powell (Chicago Fire), and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.
