The Nurse Antigone: National Association of Community Health Centers

The Nurse Antigone: National Association of Community Health Centers
Wednesday, December 14
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm EST
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 Anthony Edwards (Top Gun), Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), Charlaine Lasse (BSN, RN, RNC-NIC, Vascular Access Team, Luminis Health Anne Arundel), Craig Manbauman (Nurse, Poet, U.S. Air Force Veteran), Frankie Faison (The Wire), Jumaane Williams (Public Advocate NYC), Tonya Britt (RN, Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center), Karrie Prinzi (RN, Tri-County Family Medicine Inc.), and Kayshawn Carter-Davis ( RN, Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center).
Co-presented by Theater of War Productions, the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics, and the Resilient Nurses Initiative – Maryland.
