This 1940s adaptation of the ancient drama by Sophocles has become a classic in its own right. In defying the king’s decree, Antigone is willing to die for the sake of burying her dishonored brother–but what are her real reasons? Anouilh lays bare entirely modern questions at the heart of his telling of the story: in a world without gods, where does loyalty lie? Are there principles or passions worth more than life? In the end, the conflict between Antigone and Creon, the king, offers a harrowing portrayal of the power of ‘No,’ and the price of ‘Yes.’ A new translation from the French by our own Zander Teller brings fresh immediacy to this continually timely and always timeless story.
