When the sons of Oedipus, Polynices and Eteocles, fought for control of Thebes, brother slew brother. Creon, who emerged as King upon the death of Eteocles, rules that the body of Polynices will not be given the traditional burial rites that alone will ensure his safe passage to the underworld. Antigone, the sister of the slain brothers, openly defies this edict and performs the required funerary rites. What follows is an epic confrontation between natural law and the law of the state. Adapted from Euripides by Don Taylor, as performed by a stellar cast familiar to fans of British television theater in 1984.
