After Oedipus is banished from the kingdom, his two sons Eteocles and Polyneices have died
fighting for the throne on opposites sides of the
brutal civil war in
Thebes. Creon (Jocasta's brother), now the ruler of Thebes, declares that
Eteocles will be honored but Polyneices is to be publically shamed and refused
traditional burial rites. Antigone finds herself compelled by duty to her
family and disobeys Creon’s edict by scattering dirt across Polyneices’s
body. This creates a powerful drama that focuses on numerous issues. Saint Paul College will bring this poignant story to life, telling this classic
story in a modern setting.
