Adapted by Emily Mann from the play by Sophocles
Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
Thebes’ civil war has ended and Creon, the ascending king, has ordered that the fallen dead of the opposing army cannot be buried. Antigone defies this edict, choosing to bury her brother, claiming that her allegiance is to a higher law – that of love. This modern adaptation of an ancient Greek tragedy raises timely questions about speaking truth to power and the consequences when leaders refuse to listen.
Directed by Jeanine Henry
