Writing during the Nazi occupation of France, Anouilh chose the ancient story of Antigone to dramatize the clash between the grimy necessities of realpolitik and the demands of human freedom. The girl Antigone confronts the brutality of her Uncle, King Creon’s edicts in a play that could not be more urgent or more timely. Join Hyde Park Community Players as we stage this powerful drama in the round. Directed by Paul Baker and Susan Harris.
