About the Show
Swiftly Tilting Theatre Project, Inc. presents a modern adaptation of Sophocles' iconic Greek tragedy.
Polyneices is denied a proper burial in the Southern Irish countryside because it’s against Roman Catholic canon law according to Creon. His sister Antigone, however, is determined that her brother’s passing will be commemorated with dignity despite the consequences for herself. Modern language and clothing bring this classic tale into the 21st century, daring us to look closely at our personal values and those of the world in which we live.
