Antigone

4 Male, 4 Female

Sophocles adapted by Eamon Flack Price: $24.95

Polyneices and Eteocles, two brothers leading opposite sides in Thebesí civil war, have both been killed in battle

Creon, the new ruler of Thebes, has declared that Eteocles will be honoured and Polyneices disgraced

The rebel brotherís body will not be sanctified by holy rites, and will lay unburied to become the food of carrion animals

Defying Creonís edict Antigone buries her brother and in so doing unleashes a terrible tragedy

What a great piece of theatre! The adaptation by Eamon Flack retains the power of the original, while making it not so much up to date, as timeless - ArtsHub
