About the Play
As a Southern plantation mourns the loss of its owner's son, felled in Civil War battle, a slave works tirelessly to bury her own brother, who has been hung as punishment for an act of rebellion. Familial roots are exposed and frayed in this updated retelling of Sophocles's Antigone.
About In the Raw Festival
Expanded from Bricolage’s ongoing In the Raw series, this year’s 5-week festival format will give three local playwrights the opportunity to work closely with a dramaturg to revise, explore, and solidify a new work. Each of the selected three plays will receive a week-long workshop with a director, a dramaturg, and professional actors. The workshop will culminate in public readings at Bricolage Theater in downtown Pittsburgh, followed by audience response sessions. Join us as we celebrate emerging work and our local theater community!
