Description
Sophocles' Antigone, first staged in the 5th century BC, stands as an ever-relevant exploration of the conflict between those who affirm the individual's human rights and those who protect the state's security, as well as the conflict between divine law and civil law. This outstanding translation by Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney, commissioned by Ireland's renowned Abbey Theatre, exposes the darkness and the humanity in Sophocles' masterpiece. After her two brothers have killed each other, fighting for opposite sides in a civil war at Thebes, Antigone disobeys the edict of King Creon that forbids the burial of the "traitorous" brother, setting in motion a tragic chain of events.
