Description - Antigone by Sophocles

Both Antigone's brothers lie dead, having killed each other in single combat, one attacking Thebes, the other defending the city. Creon, ruler of Thebes, has forbidden the burial of Polyneices, because he was the attacker. Antigone is determined to bury him. The resulting conflict ends in a bloodbath of suicides. Irish playwright Owen McCafferty's new version of this ancient story closely follows Sophocles, but the language is tough and modern allowing parallels with today's Realpolitik to emerge through the Ancient Greek values that underlie the original.
