I love both plays, and both plays are taught in my school's English department. Every time I hint to students about wanting to direct The Crucible, they moan and groan - I don't know if it's something about the way our teachers handle it or what. When I announced a few years ago that I would direct Antigone, on the other hand, they responded with interest, and we had a good show with great audience turn-out. We even performed an in-school matinee for English classes whose teachers chose to bring them, and that captive audience was engaged and well-behaved.Perhaps it helped that we performed a somewhat free adaptation of Antigone rather than a literal translation of the play. It was written by David Rush and is published by Playscripts. It runs about 75 minutes, which is how we were able to do our in-school performance (on a block schedule with 90-minute classes).
