Tragic heroine Antigone defies her uncle, Creon, and buries her brother, Polynices, despite Creon’s edict banning the act. She is caught and imprisoned, but refuses to acquiesce to her uncle or sister in order to save herself. Bray’s translation of Anouilh’s modern adaptation of the Greek story is a powerful piece that stands up to time and authority.
