Antigone

Antigone
by Jean Anouilh (trans: Barbara Bray)

 A B O U T


The French playwright's retelling of the Greek tragedy which examines the eternal questions: freewill versus fate, idealism versus pragmatism.

A bloody civil war, fought over control of Thebes, has left Antigone’s brothers dead. The new king, Creon, has decreed a state funeral for one of them, while the other must remain where he fell, prey to jackals and buzzards. Should anyone try to bury him - even his sister - the sentence is death! In the hands of Jean Anouilh, Sophocles classic tragedy becomes an epic struggle of the individual against the state ...

... and sometimes against logic!

Whose side will you be on .... ?
