The curse placed on Oedipus lingers and haunts in this new and brilliant translation of Sophocles’ classic drama. The daughter of Oedipus and Jocasta, Antigone is an unconventional heroine who pits her beliefs against the King of Thebes in a bloody test of wills that leaves few unharmed. Emotions fly as she challenges the king for the right to bury her own brother. Determined but doomed, Antigone must show her inner strength to preserve her family’s honor. Based on the writings of Sophocles; translation by Nicholas Rudall.
