We've added yet another free summer event to our ever growing list. The Classical Theatre of Harlem (Ty Jones, Producing Artistic Director) presents “Antigone,” inspired by Paul Roche’s adaptation from the classic Greek tragedy by Sophocles. Back for its sixth season of free theater performances and affectionately known as the Uptown Shakespeare in the Park, the Classical Theatre of Harlem (CTH) is thrilled to return to Marcus Garvey Park this summer, presenting a work that showcases the strength and voices of audacious women responding to rigid societal inequities.
CTH’s offering of ANTIGONE is inspired by the Paul Roche adaptation which accomplishes a fidelity to the original while giving CTH the flexibility to showcase ancient ideas that have taken center stage in the current climate: order, law, justice and marginalized voices confronting power and patriarchy.

From this point on you must be a resident of New York State or a student with valid ID from the states of New York, New Jersey or Connecticut to pay-what-you-wish.
