Easter Week 6
The city of Thebes is trying to recover after a gruesome civil war, and the new-crowned king Creon will do everything to keep the state under control. But there is one person that will not conform. Drawn by the majesty of death and her uncompromising devotion to her family, Antigone buries her brother. Some call what follows a deserved punishment; others a path to glory. But who is right? And are the living always more fortunate than the dead? Seamus Heaney’s translation of Sophocles’ tragedy breathes new life into one of the most compelling dramatic pieces of all time.
