Judy Miller is a senior in college. She’s taking a Greek Theater class, and instead of handing in a standard final paper, she gives her professor a play. It’s a rewrite of Antigone in the context of the nuclear arms race. The professor, Henry Harper, won’t take it. He threatens to fail her if she doesn’t do a standard paper. Judy refuses, produces the play on campus, and the conflict escalates from there.

This is A. R. Gurney’s Another Antigone, and the Jewish Theatre of Bloomington is doing a staged reading of it on April 11, 13, 18, and 20 at 7:30 pm, with a matinee on April 14 at 3pm, at the Endwright Center at Bloomington’s College Mall. I spoke with Emily Davis, who plays Judy Miller, and Steve Scott, who plays Professor Henry Harper.
