This fresh adaptation of a classic Greek drama tells the story of a rebellious young woman, Antigone, who resists a tyrannical political leader, the new king Creon, who happens to be her uncle! Our new version features the modern-day setting of a war-torn country, and the constant media, cameras, and reporters who press themselves into the middle of this family tragedy. A masterpiece of civil disobedience, Antigone explores the struggle of the individual with the laws of the state.
Do the proud ever find joy? Whose truth matters?
