Antigone

Department of Theatre & Drama

Antigone Antigone
Antigone
In one of the most compelling pieces of classic theatre, Sophocles tells the tale of Antigone, daughter of Oedipus and sister to Eteocles and Polyneices, former rulers of Thebes who have just battled to the death. In their absence, their uncle Creon has ascended the throne and declared it illegal to bury the rebel Polyneices. Antigone refuses to obey Creon’s order, setting off a tragic conflict of morality vs. law, cruelty vs. love, and man vs. woman. Guest Director Sam White (founder of Shakespeare in Detroit), who led the Theatre & Drama students in last year’s production of Romeo & Juliet, will return to helm this production. David Mulroy, Professor of Classics Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, faithfully reproduces the literal meaning of Sophocles’ words while also reflecting his verbal pyrotechnics in this translation from 2013. Using fluid iambic pentameters for the spoken passages and rhyming stanzas for the songs, it is true to the letter and the spirit of the great Greek original.

Please Note: Due to new U-M health and safety guidance, recently updated in January 2022, this indoor, ticketed performance requires audience members to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or present a negative PCR Covid test within 72 hrs of the performance.
