04-05-2017 12:00:00 28-05-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Resistance and Rebellion in Rep Known for re-imagining works of the past to engage in modern issues, Random Access Theatre will be exploring two classic pieces with bold characters who fought against injustice in Resistance and Rebellion in Rep. Productions of Ernst Toller's Hoppla, We're Alive! and Sophocles' Antigone will alternate performances at The Loft at the Davenport Theatre May 4-28. Hoppla, We're Alive! directed by Artistic Director Jennifer Sandella, tells the story of a group of revolutionaries who, eight years after they are pardoned from death row, have found various ways to adapt to the unchanged world they once rebelled against. Politics, friendship, and conscience collide in this German play that shook up the theatre world when it originally premiered in the 1920s. Then, re-visit Antigone, the beloved story of Oedipus' courageous daughter who chooses to stand up for what she thinks is right, even in the face of dire consequences. This modern re-telling, adapted and directed by Victoria Teague, examines how a Greek tragedy fits into contemporary society, and whether you would actually be surprised to hear those kinds of stories on the nightly news today. Tickets are available now ($18 single tickets, $28 to see both shows) at www.randomaccesstheatre.com. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=224281 The Loft at the Davenport Theatre The Loft at the Davenport Theatre
