After both of her brothers die on opposing sides of a civil war, Antigone dares to defy King Creon, her uncle, by burying her "traitor" brother.  This unique presentation of the classic play explores the boundaries of honor and duty for young people in every generation.  Testing the conflicts of family versus state, moral conviction versus national law and individual responsibility versus communal harmony, this TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences) Antigone is an explosive and fast-paced thrill ride. Suitable for ages 10 to adult.
