Antigone by by Sophokles, translated by Anne Carson

An ancient story with a contemporary voice.  Using a variety of theatrical styles, this collaborative piece will highlight creative design and direction to explore the opposing worlds of man’s law vs. God’s law.


“A fresh, contemporary adaptation of Sophokles' tragedy from T.S. Eliot Prize-winning poet Anne Carson. When her dead brother is decreed a traitor, Antigone refuses to allow his body to be left unburied beyond the city walls. Defying her uncle who governs, she forges ahead with a funeral alone, placing personal allegiance before politics, a tenacious act that will trigger a cycle of destruction.” - Amazon
