Mary Moody Northen Theatre at St. Edward's University presents ANTIGONE
Set against the backdrop of the Vietnam War, Sophocles' ANTIGONE defines one girl's struggle between loyalty to family and loyalty to the state. In a climate of political ignorance, misogyny and rebellious passion, this classic tragedy explores the destructive capabilities of ego and exposes the aftermath of societal decay. For mature audiences only.
Written by Sophocles
