Antigone by Sophocles, Drama, Stage Play Script
Antigone is one of the first great heroines of the stage. Head strong, rebellious and passionate, she determines that she will bury her brother despite the King decreeing death to anyone who attempts it. The results are tragic and she cannot be saved by those who love her. She is sentenced to a lonely, painful death.
With its themes of honour and the power of the individual versus the state, along with strong female roles, Antigone is considered a classic and is a good choice for performance by amateur groups - it requires no royalties and is a consistent crowd pleaser.
It also offers great potential for workshopping into a more contemporary version by updating the language and has the potential to incorporate movement and dance. There is also potential for "doubling up" of some of the minor roles with the chorus and is very flexible in terms of set and costuming.
And Antigone is a wonderful role for a young actress - a potential power house which is often rare for young women.
"Across more than two thousand years, a great dark music sounds for us." George Steiner, Churchill College, Cambridge
