About the event

"Antigone" by Sophocles is a Greek tragedy that centers around the conflict between divine law and human law, as well as the consequences of pride and stubbornness. After a brutal civil war, Antigone's brothers, Eteocles and Polyneices, kill each other in battle. Creon, the newly crowned king of Thebes and their uncle, decrees that Eteocles will be honored with a proper burial, while Polyneices will be left unburied, a punishment for his rebellion against the city. Antigone, fiercely loyal to her family and bound by her belief in divine law, defies Creon's decree and buries her brother, sparking a tragic chain of events. Creon, steadfast in his authority, condemns Antigone to death despite the pleas of his son Haemon, who is engaged to Antigone. The play ultimately explores themes of loyalty, justice, and the consequences of prideful actions.
