The Burial at Thebes  | Open: 09/07/06 Close: 09/23/06
A version of Sophocles' Antigone

In a New York premiere, Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaneyinfuses with new fire this ancient drama of blood loyaltycolliding with the muscle of state authority "In Heaney's version, the drama is a quick, taut, invigorating read that promises to play well on the stage . . .

Screwtape Letters follows the amusing and sardonic twists and turns of Screwtape, a senior demon as he advises a junior tempter on how to "undermine faith and prevent the formation of virtues in the life of a human who has converted to Christianity."
