Sophocles tragedy updated in this new adaptation

Why See Antigone?

Plays

A New Adaptation

A young woman defies the commands of her father and must brave the consequences in Sophocles timeless tragedy. Centered around the powerful Antigone, and her refusal to be silenced, it's the perfect play for out times. This new adaptation, directed by Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle Award-nominee Kate Whoriskey (Sweat), updates the action to the present day, and marks the next chapter in the story's ever-evolving legacy.

What is Antigone About?

When Antigone's brother Polynices is labeled as a traitor and dies in battle, King Kreon of Thebes dictates that his body is lain outside the city gates and left for animals to eat, not sanctified by holy rites. Desolate and grieving, Antigone defies his edict in order to give her brother a proper burial, but is torn by the obligation as a citizen and the ties of blood and family.
