Antigone’s themes of integrity and human folly, set down in the fifth century BCE, resonate through the ages, illuminating the recent clash between public authorities and American citizens as they call for justice in police brutality cases. Bryan Doerries, author of The Theater of War: What Ancient Greek Trgedies Can Teach Us Today, directs this timely adaptation.  62 Center
