Agatha Rex

Agatha Rex

adapted by Lindsay Price from Antigone by Sophocles

Possible expulsion, expulsion, expulsion.

Agatha is a girl who stands up for her beliefs, regardless of the consequences. As student council president at Thebes High, she vigorously defends a student who is unfairly punished. Based on her actions, she could be expelled and lose an important scholarship.

Set in a modern-day high school, the play translates the original Greek chorus into a fantastic ensemble opportunity.

Praise for Agatha Rex

Juliet Cottrell
The Drama Workshop
This play was a fantastic challenge for our 14/15 yr olds. They absolutely loved the theme and rose to the challenge of the ensemble work. I liked the fact that so many could have their moment in the spotlight!
Devin Collins

I appreciated the simplicity of the scene requirements and the fun variety of character types.
