Traveling Players Presents ANTIGONE
Antigones older brothers kill each other in the civil war over who will rule Thebes. Creon, now king, has granted Antigones brother Eteocles, the rightful heir, all burial rites while leaving Polynices body to rot in the sun, unburied and not honored. Anyone who attempts to bury him will be punished by death. Fully aware of the consequences, Antigone buries Polynices and is brought before Creon as a prisoner. Will Creon overlook the actions of his niece, who happens to be engaged to his son Haemon? Will Antigones sister Ismene join with her sister against Creon? Will anyone in Oedipus family line ever live a normal life? This modern adaptation makes this ancient tale fresh, Sophocles characters relatable, and the struggle to understand the meaning of life urgent. Recommended for ages 12 and older.
