COCA Spotlight
 
Beth Slade
BFA Major at Florida State University
“Everything is heightened, everything is intense, everything is life or death in these moments,” states Beth Slade, a graduating senior and BFA major in Florida State’s School of Theatre. “Especially for these characters,” she adds.
 
Slade will step into the title role of “Antigone” as part of FSU’s pivot to a virtual season on March 11-14. The story of “Antigone” follows Oedipus’ daughter who learns that her brothers have died on opposite sides of a civil war. Creon, King of Thebes, only allows one brother to be buried with honors, which sparks debate among young and old citizens who must decide how their country will proceed into the future.
