Antigone’s brothers have just killed each other, ending a brutal civil war. The new king, Kreon, has forbidden Antigone from burying one of her brothers, which violates tradition, culture, and the laws of the gods. This is a story about honor, about fate, about family, and about the nick of time.
Carson hasn't just updated Sophokles' classic into modern English; she has rewritten the play to mine its subtlety, absurdity, and comedy to make a new story out of one of the great classics of the global theatre tradition. You've never seen or read a Greek tragedy done this way before: relevant, darkly comic, heartbreaking.
Featuring Lisa Siebert, Madalyn Rilling, Charlotte Burton, Joe O’Rear, David Brown, Richard Sebastian-Coleman, Ethan Everhart, Joanne Koehler, and Allyson Hackworth.
