St. Paul's Episcopal School
The great, modern city-state Thebes is in turmoil. The city lies in partial ruin from a great civil war. The twin brothers, children of the great and lamentable Oedipus, had agreed to share the throne; however, when one refused to honor the bargain, he fought back with an army led by seven champions. In the end, the brothers slaughtered each other with a double-blow, leaving a partially ruined Thebes in its wake. Now Creon leads with hope to steady the ship of state, but when her decree poses ethical dilemmas, she has to deal with Oedipus’ firebrand daughter, Antigone and the need to move past the bitter hatred that split Thebes apart. The St. Paul’s Players of St. Paul’s Episcopal School present their vision of Antigone on November 13, 14, 16 at 7 pm and November 17 at 2 pm. Tickets are $10. Notice: because this show is a classical tragedy, its subject matter and sensitive plot elements are best suited for those aged 13 or older.
