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.

About TeenTix LA

TeenTix LA exists to break down the barriers that prevent teens from accessing art in our community, such as ticket or admission cost, not knowing where to look for events, navigating transportation around the city, and feeling insecure around arts-going if there's no one in their lives already championing the arts.
