THE ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE
Sarah has always dreamt of playing the part of a Disney princess. In Antigone Retold, Sarah is playing the part of Megara, mortal wife of the mighty Hercules, gifted to him by her father King Creon. This role allows Meg to tell (in fact, sing) her own story. Meg has been a plot point of Hercules’ story for far too long and she can’t stay silent any longer. Megara is a part of the ‘Seven Devils’ chorus, a group of Goddesses and mortals, all with the same goal... to stick it to the man.
