Description

This is a fresh, contemporary adaptation of Sophocles’ tragedy from 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.
