Event

Antigone
Antigone and her sister decide to return to Thebes with the intention of helping their brothers, Eteocles and Polyneices, avoid a prophecy that predicts they will kill each other in a battle for the throne of Thebes.

But upon her arrival in Thebes, Antigone learns that both of her brothers are dead. Eteocles has been given a proper burial, but Kreon, Antigone's uncle who has inherited the throne, has issued a royal edict banning the burial of Polyneices, who he believes was a traitor. Antigone defies the law, buries her brother, and is caught.

----------------------------------------------------------------

This classic greek drama focuses on a nation divided. When confronted with the dilemma of disobeying her uncle to adhere to the will of the gods, Antigone highlights the moral question of what is right and wrong, and what it will cost her.


----------------------------------------------------------------

Note from the Director, Kory Gunderson:

Antigone offers audiences a way to engage some of the issues and questions of our own time around loyalty/patriotism and law/ethics in a manner that is neither dependent on affiliations or biases nor reductive of the complexity of political and societal life. Rather, the play reveals how these issues might be conceived through our shared humanity.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Antigone, first produced in Athens in 441 BCE, has remained relevant and powerful throughout history as it explores the difficulties associated with balancing the needs of individuals within the greater societal good. The play raises timely questions around loyalty/patriotism, law/ethics, and the roles of men and women as it explores the misuse of power and the compromise of humanity. Following a modern translation and styled with a pared-down, elemental rawness, Gundersons Antigone offers audiences direct access to this beautifully intense and haunting story.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Antigone will be performed February 16, 2018 to March 4, 2018.
