Antigone by Sophocles. Translated by Sir George Young. Presented by the Online Stage.

Sophocles (497 BC-406 BC), Aeschylus, and Euripides formed a trio of ancient Greek tragedians whose works represent the foundation of the Western tradition of classic drama. Of the more than 100 plays written by Sophocles, seven have survived to the present day. Perhaps the most famous of these are the three that are now known as the Theban plays: Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone.

After the death of their father, Oedipus, Antigone and Ismene return to Thebes. The ruler is their unyielding uncle by marriage, Creon, who assumed command after the death of the sons of Oedipus, Eteocles, and Polynices in a fratricidal struggle to take control of the city. Creon has the body of one brother buried with full civic honors but forbids the burial of the body of the other, whom he regards as a traitor. Antigone's challenge to Creon's decree, which she considers unjust, results in the extinction of the family line of Oedipus.

Cast: Libby Stephenson as Antigone, Amanda Friday as Ismene, Alan Weyman as Creon, Marty Kris as First Senator, Peter Tucker as Sentinel, Jennifer Fournier as Haemon, John Burlinson as Tiresias, K. G.Cross as Messenger in Attendance on Creon, Cate Barratt as Eurydice; Chorus performed by Brett Downey, Elizabeth Klett, Ed Humpal, and Cate Barratt; stage directions read by Grace Garrett.
