Born into the florescent glow of a White Castle ladies’ room, Bob is destined to become a “Great Man.” Form busy highway rest stops to exorbitant desert mansions, Bob energetically pursues his Destiney across the American landscape and meets a myriad of unconventional countrymen along the way. As Bob’s unfailing optimism leads him through a treacherous pursuit of happiness, he encounters inspiring generosity, crushing heartaches, blissful happiness, and stunning coincidences that help him discover what it means to be truly “great.”

ANTIGONE (born against.) Runs May 17-19

ETC_Antigone logoANTIGONE (born against.)
Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati Acting Apprentice Company
May 17-19
Know Theatre of Cincinnati [Over-the-Rhine]

Translated and adapted from Sophocles by Griff Bludworth
Directed by Ben Raanan

Cast: Brianna Bernard, Griff Bludworth, Kyle Parker Daniels, Maya Farhat, Victoria Hawley, Kat McCaulla, Samantha Russell & Clay Winstead

A new take on Sophocles’ tragedy, ANTIGONE (born against.) blurs the lines between adaptation and translation and places contemporary issues of oppression at the fore. The struggle between morally right and politic, the tension between peace and justice come to life in a story that is both timeless and horrifically timely.
