Jean Anouilh's Antigone
This summer, SYT presents Jean Anouilh's tragedy
Antigone, inspired by Greek mythology and
Sophocles' Antigone. The play was first performed
in Paris in 1944 during the Nazi occupation. It's
English debut was in London in 1949 with Laurence
Olivier and Vivien Leigh. Originally produced under
Nazi censorship, Antigone is purposefully
ambiguous with regard to the rejection of authority
(Antigone) and the acceptance of it (Creon). The
futility and complexity of war, victors, and fallen
heroes provides a strong commentary on current
conflicts.

Antigone is directed by Talena Martinez. Ms.
Martinez has directed productions of original
musicals including Just As You Are and Shades of
Grey, as well as Godspell, Alice and Wonderland,
Narnia, Peter Pan, Fame, and Grease. She founded
Austin Children's Theater in 2008 and Austin
Conservatory of Theater in 2011. She has designed
costumes for Summer Youth Theatre and VORTEX
since 2007. She has also designed costumes and
makeup for diverse companies including ethos,
Different Stages, Indianapolis Civic Theatre, Austin
Lyric Opera, Westlake High School, Theatre at the J,
St. Stephen's High School, LASA/LBJ High,
McCallum High School, and kidsActing. Ms.
Martinez teaches acting, production, design, and
technical theatre all around Austin.

Over the past 22 years, SYT has received dozens of
award nominations. In 2012, SYT won B. Iden Payne
Awards for Outstanding Production and Outstanding
Direction of a Play for Youth for The Commedia of
Errors. SYT has also received awards for The
Physicists, Vitriol and Violets, Machinal, The Frogs,
Moby Dick, and Dicken's Tale of Two Cities.
