The Burial at Thebes

In The Burial at Thebes, a young woman defies the law of the king with
violent and tragic consequences. This version of Sophocles’ original
play ‘Antigone’ explores the dangers of pride and absolute belief
regardless of personal, political, and moral consequences especially in
the eternal struggle between the individual and the state, between
conscience and society and between divine law and human law.
Adapted from the original play ‘Antigone’ by Sophocles.
Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney’s concise, accessible and
lyrical translation speaks clearly to modern audiences without sacrificing the play’s classic grace.
