Antigone is a girl who wants to bury her brother; Creon is a king to whom order is paramount. When uncle and niece's paths converge, the two become locked in a moral and ideological battle that calls into question family, leadership, and honor. Antigone is a play as powerful as it is timeless – one part coming of age drama, one part political exposé, and one part family story, the Theban tragedy forces audiences to weigh pragmatism and emotion in a venue where no one's motives are unimpeachable. Sophocles' nuanced characters and vibrant plot tackle themes of loss, justice, growth, and responsibility – a story as powerful today as almost 3000 years ago.
