Oct. 22, 2014: Love, death, duty, fate, obedience, rebellion, power. Anouilh's Antigone, a modernization of Sophocles's play by the same name, often considered his masterpiece, will be the first of two one-act plays in Power Plays, presented by the Bronxville High School Drama Department, on Thursday, October 23, at 5:00 pm and Friday and Saturday, October 24 and 25, at 7:00 pm in the Black Box Theater on the fourth floor of the high school (Director Peter Royal's classroom). Seating is limited to the first 50 people each night, and tickets are $10 at the door.

Waiting for Lefty, Clifford Odets's play based loosely on the 1934 New York City taxi strike, is the second performance. It garnered 28 curtain calls when it premiered in 1935.

Come experience the intensity of these plays within the intimacy of the Black Box Theater!
