The Story:
Antigone, a young woman, confronts a tyrannical leader who believes he is above the laws of god and man. The ruler Creon issues proclamations, which serve his desire to have the ultimate control over right and wrong, and his advisors do nothing to stop him. Only Antigone stands up for what’s right, even when it means turning her back on her own sister. Performed in modern dress in an adaptation by Bertolt Brecht, this ancient Greek play speaks directly to issues, which confront us today, and encourages us to fight for our beliefs, before it’s too late.
