Visky’s play is a bold and poetic interpretation of mythological Antigone featuring Mother Teresa as the contemporary reflection of the Greek heroine. Experiencing a similar sense of responsibility, duty and mission as her fabled counterpart, Teresa, portrayed by four different actresses at various ages, confronts society’s utter inability to deal with current tragedies and social ills.
The 22-25 November performances will be followed by talks covering subjects like women in theatre, theatre in translation, and theatrical creativity.
