“Antigone” is based Sophocles Greek tragedy of the same name. This version written by the great French writer Jean Anouilh in 1944 is a more modern telling of the Greek classic.
The young, slender, 17 year old Antigone is representative of the modern day freedom fighter as she resolutely deifies a solemn edict declared by her uncle King Creon, to the point of being put to death.
“Antigone” is an outstanding example of Anouilh’s unerring technical skill. It is a permanent landmark in 20th century French theatre and is regularly performed and studied around the world.
