Thursday 16 April: Begin Anouilh's Antigone; read pp. 3-25; note differences between Anouilh and Sophocles
As you know, Anouilh's Antigone is a twentieth-century re-working of Sophocles' Ancient Greek text. It was first performed in 1944 in France--when France was occupied by Nazi Germany. As you read, consider the possible political implications of the play as you explore the rising voice of the individual against the state.
Friday 17 April: Finish Anouilh's Antigone; read pp. 26-51 (end); participate in discussion forum by 6pm
Monday 20 April: (Mandatory) Zoom call 11:30-12:30; Be ready to talk more about the SQ you answered on the discussion forum. On the call, we'll talk about the play and then set up staged reading group assignments
Tuesday 21 April: Proposal for staged reading scenes due--groups may hand in one proposal with all names on it. Give your first, second, and their choices of scenes. Hand this in by noon today so that I can assign scenes immediately and you can get started. I will assign scenes in the order I receive proposals so there's an advantage in deciding efficiently. Hand in through the assignment in Jupiter (anyone in the group may hand in for all).
