Antigone, the ill-fated daughter of Oedipus, is about to face the ultimate moral dilemma. In confronting the oppression of her uncle, King Creon, does she stay silent or risk all she loves to fight and die for what’s right?

In this dark take on a Greek classic, Antigone and her sister Ismene return to Thebes to help their brothers, only to find both brothers dead and their uncle Creon in power. As a chorus looks on, a tragedy unfolds, spilling over to affect everyone Antigone loves.

No show Sunday or Monday.
