In the Wings: Antigone. Meet Molly Synesael.

Molly Synesael plays the Messenger in Antigone, the first Civic Youth Theatre production in the 2013-2014 season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. David Felshuh adapted the script from the original by Sophocles.

Question: Why did you audition for Antigone?
Molly Synesael: This is my first Civic show. I thought this was such a powerful play, and I thought it would be fun to be part of.

Q: Who is the Messenger? What does she do?
M.S.: The Messenger gives the news about everything that happens in the second act.

Q: Who is your favorite character from Greek mythology or literature?
M.S.: Artemis, because she is about girl power.

Antigone opens Friday, September 27 and runs through Sunday, September 29 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street, at the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday show begins at 2:30 p.m.
