A newly conceived version of the classic Greek tale. After the battle for the kingdom of Thebes, King Creon declares that one of the two brothers who fought this civil war would remain unburied as a punishment for starting the conflict and as a warning to any other warrior who plots against the state. Antigone, whose brother is left unburied for dogs and vultures to consume, cannot violate her conscience and the rites of burial, which will allow her dead brother's spirit to rest. Going against the state and King Creon, Antigone buries the body of her brother. A classic battle of the individual against the state ensues and spins to its tragic finale.
The chorus in this brand new version comprises seven ballads in short form and long. They can be either chanted or sung to the music, which is included in the play script. Professionals, college or high school groups can easily produce this play.
