Written by Sophokles, a new translation by Anne Carson
Directed by Matthew Pezzulich
Should love or law guarantee the dignity of the dead? Poet and MacArthur fellow Anne Carson’s new colloquial translation pares Sophokles’ great question to the tragic bone. In Thebes, Antigone has refuted King Kreon’s order: that her traitorous brother’s body be left to rot outside the city gates. This reimagined Antigone is a taut, unsentimental account of a woman who, as removed from life as she is from death, ends up taking both into her own hands.
