The pressure is on when a small Latiné theatre ensemble receives the biggest grant of their careers to write an adaptation of Antigone set in the borderlands. A postcolonial dark comedy that takes an irreverent look at the American Theatre, the US-Mexico border, and the generational trauma that has plagued us all from the ancient Greeks to present day Chicanx artists.  Written and performed by Jonathan Heras, Milta Ortiz, and Marc David Pinate. With guest playwright, Jesus I. Valles. Digital projections by Adam Cooper-Terán and live waila music by Gertie Lopez. Co-directed and dramaturgy by Roweena Mackay.
