ANTIGONE 
By Sophokles 
Translated by Anne Carson
Directed by Natalia Lassalle-Morillo
 
In the aftermath of a devastating civil war, Antigone is left standing in the ruins. One of her dead brothers is declared a traitor, while the other is proclaimed a hero. Kreon, the city's appointed ruler, leaves his traitorous nephew’s body to rot beyond the city walls. Defying the command of her uncle, Antigone buries her brother in secret, turning an act of duty into rebellion - and triggering a domino effect that shakes her shattered nation to its core. In a powerful new adaptation from award-winning poet Anne Carson, Antigone interrogates the difference between what is legal and what is right.
