Plot

In the world of Sophocles (495-406 B.C.) gods are distant; their actions are often incomprehensible. Human laws are absolute and cannot be transgressed. Yet Antigone decides to break these laws. Her murdered brother must receive the respect she believes he is entitled to, regardless of the fact that he is considered a traitor. When Creon finally decides to grant Antigone her wish, it is too late. This 631-verse ancient Greek dramatic poem has been transposed to a contemporary North American city.

Plot

Gli dei creati da Sofocle (495-406 A.C.) sono distanti; le loro azioni sono spesso incomprensibili. Le leggi umane sono assolute e non possono essere trasgredite. Ma Antigone decide di romperle. Suo fratello assassinato deve ricevere il rispetto che merita, nonostante sia stato tacciato come traditore. Quando Creone decide finalmente di soddisfare il desiderio di Antigone, è troppo tardi. L’antico dramma greco in 631 versi viene trasposto in una città nord americana contemporanea.
