Join us for the seventh installment of The Nurse Antigone! A groundbreaking project by and for nurses, The Nurse Antigone presents dramatic readings of Sophocles’ Antigone on Zoom—featuring professional actors and a chorus of frontline nurses—to help frame powerful, guided discussions about the unique challenges faced by nurses. Antigone, an ancient play about a young woman who puts everything on the line to do what she believes is right, dramatizes the heavy cost of silencing and marginalizing caregivers, especially during times of crisis. By performing Sophocles’ play for diverse audiences, including nurses as well as concerned citizens, The Nurse Antigone aims to generate compassion, awareness, connection, and much-needed healing, while celebrating and advocating for nurses at this critical juncture in the history of their profession.
Featuring performances by Karla Mosley (The Bold and the Beautiful), Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Brian F. O’Byrne (Little Boy Blue), Frankie Faison (The Wire), Jumaane Williams (NYC Public Advocate), Craig Manbauman (Nurse, Poet, U.S. Air Force Veteran), Tiffany Caldwell (BSN, RNC), Stacy Jassey (RN, BSN, CMSRN), and Sara Mason (BSN, RN, CVRN).
