Tonight through Saturday

If a contest were held for the most dysfunctional family ever, the ancient Greek maiden Antigone would snatch first prize, hands down. Her dad, Oedipus, did in his father and wed his mother, thereby hurling young Antigone in the bewildering situation of having a mother who was also her grandmother. That marriage, as we know, didn't go too well, but Antigone's troubles didn't end with the tragic unraveling of her parents. Her brothers started feuding, and her decision to bury one's body angered some in her restive clan. The Minnesota State University Moorhead's theater folks fused Sophocles' great tragedies in "Oedipus/Antigone," ratcheting up their already high body count. The show runs at 7:30 p.m. tonight through Saturday at the Roland Dille Center for the Arts. Tickets are $6 to $12. (218) 477-2271
