Slovenia's most acclaimed playwright Evald Flisar takes on a timeless Greek tragedy with his riveting drama Antigone Now, coming to D.C.'s Atlas Performing Arts Center. Set in a Mediterranean seaside village, Flisar's adaptation centers on young Clara. She learns that her uncle, the Mayor, has struck a deal with foreign investors to build a golf course and hotel to create jobs and prosperity. But first, he must demolish the local graveyard and move the corpses to a crematorium he intends to build. Clara refuses to surrender her departed brother's grave and a powerful confrontation unfolds. Antigone Now begs the question: Can the common good win without destroying personal values?
