CRT has Too Much Memory

Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) will present Keith Reddin’s and Meg Gibson’s Too Much Memory, a modern take on Antigone March 25 – April 3 in the Studio Theatre on the Storrs campus.

Antigone won't take no for an answer – and it's going to cost her. She's the daughter of Oedipus and his own mother, now defying Creon, leader of Thebes, by insisting that her traitorous brother be given an honorable funeral. Despite being engaged to Creon's son, she'll face death if she won't back down. This smart retelling of the 5th-century classic is set firmly in the present and doesn't take itself too seriously, with a wise-cracking chorus that describes the play as an “adaptation of an adaptation of a re-translation."

It's directed by Helene Kvale. For tickets and information, call 860-486-4226 or visit http://www.crt.uconn.edu/.
