AntigoneThe American Shakespeare Center and the Department of Theater and Dance present Sophocles' Antigone, directed by Doreen Bechtol and sponsored by Richard B. Smith.

In the aftermath of her brothers’ bloody war, Antigone is left torn. Her brother Eteocles will be honored, but her brother Polyneices will be shamed and denied funeral rites. In this ancient tale, Antigone stands for morality in spite of punishment as one of the earliest heroines in drama. Sophocles’s drama from 441 BC holds startling relevance today, examining divinity, obedience, and law — and how love overcomes them all.

Presented by American Shakespeare Center with support from the Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Classics Department, Government Department, and the Cultural Events Committee.

Tickets available online or at the door.
