Antigonick

Through May 3
510-841-6500
Antigonick
“What is a nick?” asks Eurydike (Monique Jenkinson) in Antigonick, the story based on Sophocles’ 441 B.C. tragedy, and adapted by playwright and poet Anne Carson. Eurydike is referring to the space of time in which the death of her son Haimon could have been prevented, but she’s also asking one of Antigonick’s central questions: What is time, and how do we measure it? In this case, time is tampered with by the graceful, ghost-like figure of Nick (Parker Murphy), who attaches himself to different characters throughout the play, sometimes mirroring their actions, sometimes deviating from them completely. Carson’s translation stays true to the classic play, but emphasizes new aspects of the tragedy. She originally produced Antigonick as an art book, with characters’ lines hand-lettered in all-caps and spread across the pages in unconventional ways. What’s amazing is how co-directors Mark Jackson and Hope Mohr managed to faithfully transform Carson’s very visual book into a compelling play. Another highlight is Jenkinson, who imbues Eurydike with a new awareness of her own marginalization. Her delivery is pained and powerful, and followed by a dance that is equal parts destructive and empowering. Her emotional outpouring eclipses all the other tragedies. Audience-goers will see Jenkinson’s desperate eyes long after the play’s end. $25-$40
