Theatre@York presents hagsantigone 2020

You are cordially invited to the opening of the new and reimagined 2020-21 Theatre@York season. We are delighted to present:

The Antigone Play by Theatre & Performance Studies PhD candidate, Tabia Lau, directed by David Jansen. A contemporary adaptation of Sophocles’ ANTIGONE. Tig is distraught to find that her Uncle Chris is making drastic changes to her family’s restaurant, which her beloved grandmother opened years ago as a recent immigrant and refugee. Outraged by what she sees as a betrayal of the family, Tig starts an online campaign to stand up to her uncle, save the legacy of the restaurant, and restore her family’s honour. As the campaign catches fire, Tig considers just how far she must go.
The Antigone Play opens on Tuesday, November 24 at 7:30pm

HAGS by York Theatre alum, Aaron Jan, directed by David Jansen. A dark, rapid-fire comedy that explores the limits of forgiveness in vengeful millennials and Gen Zs. When a team of online activists gathers to recruit their newest member, the group is Zoom-bombed by the alt-right, leading to a night of violence and a settling of old scores. HAGS asks: how do we find satisfying justice in online spaces? When do we go too far in our pursuit of a better world?
HAGS opens on Wednesday, November 25 at 7:30pm

Tickets are free of charge. Online reservations for opening night, or any of the other performances, can be made at:
