Antigone

the classic Greek tragedy by Jean Anouilh
directed by John Rutski

March 16 – April 14

There’s turmoil in the city of Thebes after a long civil war. The sons of Oedipus have slain one another for control of the throne following their father’s death. Creon, the new king, has decreed that one of the sons is to be buried with honors while the other is to be left to rot. In the face of certain death, Antigone rebels against this tyrant and his unjust law in order to bury her brother and do what is morally right.
