By Sophocles
Translated by Brendan Kennelly
Directed by Lisa Nathans
Antigone, a young woman, speaks truth to power, firmly convinced that she is right in following her moral imperative. Her King, Creon, is firmly convinced of the opposite – his law should be obeyed. This elemental ancient play about primordial human themes – honor, loyalty, love, betrayal and conviction – resonates as sharply and as damningly today as it did when it was written 2,500 years ago. This production will focus on the paradox of who is right versus who is wrong... Antigone or Creon? With the help of a modern Greek chorus, audiences will come to their own conclusions.
