Recurring Event Event Series: The Island – Matinee Performances

The Island – Matinee Performances

November 27 @ 2:00 pm CST

island prepro 1000x400 1

John and Winston are political prisoners on South Africa’s infamous Robben Island, spending their days toiling at grueling, futile tasks in the prison’s quarry. At night, they secretly rehearse a two-man version of Antigone and find solace and strength in their burgeoning friendship. The Island is at once a sobering glimpse into the social, physical, and psychological wounds of Apartheid; a lesson in the complex work of liberation; and a testament to the transformative power of theatre.

Associate Artistic Director Gabrielle Randle-Bent makes her solo directorial debut at Court, bringing her vision of resistance and resilience to the stage, featuring actors Ronald L. Conner and Kai Ealy.
