Greek tragedy and cheap beer mix in ‘The Theban Chronicles’ presented by San Francisco Theater Pub, a four part serial drawn from the writings of the three Greek tragedians – Aeschylus, Euripides, and Sophocles – that tells the story of the House of Oedipus.
In part four, ‘Antigone’ by Sophocles, the family drama of the house of Oedipus comes to a horrifying end. Following the civil war, Antigone defies the orders of the state to give a proper burial to her brother, Polynieces. Widely celebrated as one of the masterworks of Greek Tragedy, ‘Antigone’ will be presented concert style in the Cafe Royale Bar (800 Post Street, San Francsico, at Leavenworth). Patrons are encouraged to grab a beer, enjoy the play, and hang out with the collaborative team after the show.
All Theater Pub performances run under an hour and are free to attend.
