A muscular version of Sophocles' timeless masterpiece, offering a profound reflection on the nature of power, democracy and human rights.
Both Antigone's brothers lie dead, having killed each other in single combat, one attacking Thebes, the other defending the city. Creon, ruler of Thebes, has forbidden the burial of Polyneices, because he was the attacker. Antigone is determined to bury him. The resulting conflict ends in a bloodbath of suicides.
