What is an individual life in the scheme of larger ideals, or the power of love in the face of hostility? A heated battle between Antigone, daughter of the cursed house of Oedipus, and her uncle, King Creon, rips apart the very fabric of family. Young Antigone flies beyond the bounds of her gender and age to do what she thinks is right for her family. Creon defiantly defends the law of the land that he thinks is right for the greater good of all. Sophocles writes on relevant and shockingly timely themes, asking us all to consider difficult moral questions that, as seen in this play, prove devastating in the end.
