ANTIGONE by Jean Anouilh
Anouilh's ANTIGONE is an adaptation of Sophocles' tragic play. Written in 1942, when the Nazis occupied France, the play revolves around the conflict between the idealist Antigone and her rigid uncle, Creon, over the proper burial of Antigone's brother, Polynices.

The play was also interpreted to represent the struggle of the French Resistance against the Vichy government during the Nazi occupation. Often considered his masterpiece, ANTIGONE cemented Anouilh's reputation as a dramatist.

The play was an instant success when it was first staged in Paris in 1944.

"When Jean Anouilh turns historian we can take it that truth will be revealed in the light of the emotions lightly, wittily revealed, in brilliant flashes. But truth is no less true because it comes as a jest in a jeweled sentence." (Caryl Brahmns).

ANTIGONE By Jean Anouilh, Directed by Bruce Coughran will be performed Fridays and Saturdays, January 22 through February 20, 2010 with an extra performance on Thursday, February 19th. All performances begin at 8:00 pm.
