A civil war has just ended in Thebes. Antigone’s brother, Polyneices and Eteocles are both killed in battle. But Kreon, Antigone’s uncle and the new ruler of Thebes, rules that only Eteocles be properly and honorably buried, while Polyneices, called a traitor, remain uncovered, beyond the city walls. Antigone goes against Kreon’s order, burying Polyneices. Ritual and gender politics are challenged in this exciting new adaptation.
Performances can take place morning or afternoon. The production is flexible and self-contained; all we need is a bare stage. Performances followed by a talkback with actor and director, and accompanied with a study guide for the performance.
