Antigone is performing at The Marlene Boll Theatre. A city devastated by war. A family divided by duty and power. A clash of justice and tyrannical power. All stand at the forefront of Antigone, a Greek tragedy by Sophocles. The story follows Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, as she defies her politician uncle Creon in order to give her brother a proper burial, even though the act is punishable by death. Antigone’s act of civil disobedience sparks a struggle between individual and state in this timeless yet urgent tale which resonates in contemporary politics.
