But when the British army major prosecuting the case finds himself caught under Grese's seductive spell, it's up to former Auschwitz-Birkenau prisoner Lengyel to teach the lawyer a lesson in dignity and survival.
A Noise Within Antigone
As one of drama's most compelling heroines, Jean Anouilh's Antigone symbolized defiance during the Nazi occupation of France. Now A Noise Within's resident artist Robertson Dean adapts Anouilh's reimagining of Sophocles' Greek tragedy Antigone -- and it's "as relevant now as at any other time," according to the Los Angeles Times. While Antigone's anti-establishment message slipped under the Nazi regime's radar, it rings loud and clear on stage in this classic tale of a dead soldier's outraged sister who's determined to give her brother proper burial rites. As Antigone accepts her fate with fearless grace, she dares us all to look closely at our personal values and those of the world in which we live.This show is recommended for ages 12 and older.

Decades of family resentment burst through centuries of historical sin in this outrageous and entertaining family drama. A subversive take on a classic American genre, playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Appropriate offers a bold, modern look at race and identity.
