The Story 

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.
