About the Play

Antigone tells the story of a woman torn between doing what she believes is right and self-preservation. Inspired by Greek tragedian Sophocles’ play of the same name, Anouilh’s version was first performed in Nazi-occupied Paris in 1944. 75 years later, the play and the moral ambiguities it explores remain provocative and timely. Antigone is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
