University of Scranton Players Present Antigone

Friday, 27 September, 2019

In the aftermath of a civil war, King Creon decrees that Polynices, the slain leader of the rebellion against Thebes, shall go unburied. Judging this against the law of the gods, Antigone, the fiancee of Creon’s son, buries her brother Polynices, setting up a showdown within the family and over the power of the state. Sophocles’ timeless tale of rebellion, power, and higher purposes still crackles with vitality some 2500 years after its first performance. Which is the most just, and what should we follow, the law of the gods or the laws of men?
