Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, belongs to a bloodline whose inescapable fate seems to damn her to a life of tragedy. Antigone’s two brothers, Polynices and Eteocles, have been murdered and Antigone’s uncle, King Creon, has declared that Polynices’ body be left to rot without proper burial rites. Fearing for the safety of her brother’s soul, she disobeys Creon’s direct order and takes matters into her own hands.

“Director Bryn Kennedy and Rachel VanDuzer collaborated to bring Antigone to life, using Jean Anouilh’s translation and a striking aesthetic.” – Kathelene Cattell-Daniels, The Medium
