Antigone In Munich

Walking into a darkened theater is always exhilarating.  The wonderment and curiosity of not knowing what you’re about to experience is enough to cause a great tingle of anticipation. Upon entering the theater to watch Antigone In Munich, the audience was immediately met by a stage backdropped with Nazi flags. I had been told that this play was going to have some heavy themes; with this set dressing that weight was instantly felt.

The story follows a small group of German college students in 1943 Munich who decide to speak out against evil when no one else will. The group writes and disperses leaflets exposing the evil inherent in the Nazi regime. Several of them ultimately lose their lives because of their actions.

The production, though simple on the surface with only a couple of locations and set pieces, told a vivid story. Most of the tale is seen as a flashback from the lead character Sophie, played by Aliyah Tucker, while she is interrogated by Mohr, played by Max Leonard.  These two actors carried a lot of emotional weight as they helped deliver this powerful story. Abbi Martinson brought “Young Sophie” to life during the aforementioned flashback scenes; her strong delivery of lines as well as her energy and emotions kept the audience engaged. The rest of the cast and ensemble completed a passionate group of characters.

Kudos also go to the crew who managed video production on the backdrops to create a new and dynamic experience, as well as sound effects for a very impactful moment.

There was not a weak link in the whole production, and I look forward to taking in the next show from the Deer Park High School drama team.
