The Burial at Thebes
by StageCenter Community Theatre

Apr. 04 - Apr. 20, 2024

In The Burial at Thebes, a young woman defies the law of the king with violent and tragic consequences. This version of Sophocles' original
play 'Antigone' explores the dangers of pride and absolute belief regardless of personal, political and moral consequences especially in
the eternal struggle between the individual and the state, between conscience and society and between divine law and human law.

Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney’s concise, accessible and lyrical translation speaks clearly to modern audiences without sacrificing
the play’s classic grace.

​“A Young Girl Before the King: Seamus Heaney takes possession of a classic and in the process gives us a play for our time.” -The Irish Times
