'Antigone' by Anne Carson and Sophocles

Presented by Counterweight Theatre Lab at Springs Ensemble Theatre

Antigone’s brothers have just killed each other, ending a brutal civil war. The new king, Kreon, has forbidden Antigone from burying one of her brothers, which violates tradition, culture, and the laws of the gods.

This is a story about honor, about fate, about family, and about the nick of time.

Carson hasn’t just updated Sophokles’ classic into modern English; she has rewritten the play to mine its subtlety, absurdity, and comedy to make a new story out of one of the great classics of the global theater tradition.

You’ve never seen or read a Greek tragedy done this way before: relevant, hilarious, heartbreaking.
