In this seminal Greek play by Sophocles, Antigone defies the royal edict not to bury the body of her brother Polynices sent out by her uncle Creon. Exploring the struggle between the individual and the state, this elegant tragedy about tyrannical power and civil disobedience is considered to be Sophocles’ masterpiece and has become synonymous with political protest.
