As the daughter of Oedipus, Antigone was dealt a cruel hand at birth—even within the bounds of Grecian tragedy. When her brothers are slain fighting for the throne of Thebes, Antigone finds herself pitted against her uncle, the newly crowned King Creon. Defying the king, Antigone buries her brother's body, a choice that may cost her dearly. In this adaptation of Sophocles's 2400-year-old play, poet Hollie McNish illuminates the remarkable resemblances between ancient Greek thought and the society we live in today.
