Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This liberal adaptation of the story of Antigone and Oedipus utilizes Greek actors is set in the 19th century. Antigone goes with her father Oedipus as he travels outside of Greece with a traveling troupe of actors. Sister Ismene shows up and begs Antigone to go home with her because their brothers are fighting. Antigone does return to find the brothers dead and after blaming King Creon, hangs herself. Much of the dialog has been pirated from the works of Shakespeare, Pound, Dostoevsky, Duras, and Tolstoy. The soundtrack has been gleaned from several classical pieces.
