Lena Kitsopoulou

ANTIGONE - LONELY PLANET is part of the Onassis Festival 2019: Democracy Is Coming, co-presented by The Public Theater and Onassis USA.

From the imagination of Lena Kitsopoulou, the Greek stage's preeminent wild child, comes a peculiar metamorphosis of an ancient Greek tragedy: Sophocles' Antigone, staged as a comedy. Can it be done? A quartet of skiers are invited to deliver a panel discussion on Antigone. This absurd premise quickly takes a dark spin which stays true to the motifs of the original play, all the while offering a satirical and desperate "here and now" take on it.

*All orders subject to $6 per ticket service fee and $2 per ticket facility fee. Service fees are waived when you buy in person at the Box Office. All fees are waived for Public Theater Members and PartnersPerformers, prices, and performance details are subject to change.
