Antigone defies the edict of her Uncle Creon by insisting on giving her brother a proper burial. Creon, who stabilized a chaotic Thebes through his authoritarian rule, now has a choice – risk disorder and loss of credibility by covering up Antigone’s act, or put her to death to maintain civil order. The choice… is hers. Inspired by one of the most time-honored Greek tragedies, this is an enduring tale of making heroic choices in the face of an impossible destiny. For everyone ages 13 and up.
