What happens when personal conviction clashes against state law? How do we bridge the ever-growing divide between law enforcement officers and the American communities they are charged with protecting? Acclaimed actors, police officers, local educators and concerned community members come together for dramatic readings and powerful gospel settings that bring to life Sophocles’ eternal Greek tragedy in Antigone in Ferguson – a ground-breaking social justice theatre project that aims to generate much-needed dialogue, to foster compassion and understanding, and to inspire taking positive action.
