The Island

by Athol Fugard

March 9 – 27, 2016

City Stage at Union Station

Featuring Damron Russel Armstrong & Teddy Trice

The Island  is Robben Island, South Africa’s notorious prison, where John and Winston are political prisoners and cellmates. After absurdly grueling days laboring under the sun, they return to their dark cell to rehearse a makeshift performance of Sophocles’ play Antigone. Rehearsals in the cramped cell will test their friendship and strain their resilience in this gripping, vivid portrait of apartheid-era struggle.
