Join the Califa Arts Chapter of The Society, Incorporated for a performance of Antigone's Last Birthday at Inner-City Arts.

About Antigone's Last Birthday

In collaboration with decorated playwright Megan Tabaque, Inner-City Arts' Work of Art interns are excited to present the Los Angeles premiere of a new adaptation of Antigone. Set in a fictional border town, the team refocuses Sophocles' ancient Greek tragedy of rebellion, banishment, and fatal consequences into a contemporary Latine tale of power, resilience, and relentless fervor of teenage girls as agents of change.

Produced and directed by Inner-City Arts Associate Director of Work of Art Holli Hornlien.
