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.
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.
- Minimum Fee: $45 per performance
- Setting: Thebes, Ancient Greece
Antigone - Daughter of Oedipus
Ismene - Daughter of Oedipus
Creon - King of Thebes
Haemon - Son of Creon
Tiresias - A blind prophet
Eurydice - Wife of Creon
Three actors might play all of the characters using masks, as was the ancient modus.
The chorus can be a singing group, or if preferred, they can chant the lines of the chorus. The choral part can be performed by one person. The single chorus member or group is not masked. For the original length chorus verses and refrains, please check the addendum.
