Loosely adapted from Sophocles’ Greek tragedy, the award-winning Antigone delivers a subtle but scathing indictment of the current refugee experience in North America.

Jeopardizing her promising future, she invents a fearless, dangerous plan to free him. Featuring a stunning performance by Nahéma Ricci in the lead role.
