The Burial at Thebes 

When: March 27-April 19 2015


NCSU'S KENNEDY-MCILWEE STUDIO THEATRE—50 years ago, the first university-recognized theater company opened at NC State. Its inaugural production was Antigone, Sophocles' classic drama, which has asked audiences back to fifth-century Greece to contemplate the consequences when a citizen's duties to state, family and gods come into conflict. University Theatre celebrates its golden anniversary with Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney's 2004 adaptation. It sprinkles Irish idioms through the text, and likens Creon, the unwise ruler of Thebes, to a modern-day ruler of the time: George W. Bush. 7:30 p.m. March 27–29, April 8–12, April 15–19; 2 p.m. Sun., $4.68–$18, 2241 Dunn Ave., Raleigh, 919-515-1100, —Byron Woods
