By Sophocles Translated by Elizabeth Wyckoff
Directed by Matt Wilson

Virtual Performance presented by the Corcoran Program of Theatre & Dance.

 

One of the great Greek Tragedies, The King Creon has decreed that the body of his nephew, the rebel Polynices, is not to be buried. But Antigone, Creon’s niece and sister to Polynices, refuses to accept this dishonor. The Law vs the Rebel, a family’s honor vs the status quo, a King vs the gods—and a niece defying her uncle.
