Write an essay about one of Sophocles’s plays ”Oedipus Rex” or “Antigone” OR about “The Gospel at Colonus”. Analyze how the play might have been performed in ancient Greece or propose an idea for how it might be successfully adapted for today’s audience. If you write about The Gospel at Colonus, then analyze the performance you have watched OR propose ways to update it for today, 30 years later.
How does the play address the audience? What is their relationship with what is on stage? What do they expect from the performance and how does it address concerns relevant to their life?
Make sure you have an overall argument about what your examples suggest about what the play has to say to a SPECIFIC audience in a SPECIFIC moment in history.
Please use MLA formatting for any citations and include a works-cited page with an entry for any texts or media you discuss.
