Antigone


Kyle Brenton, Acts of War

At the center of Sophocles' original play is a struggle to reconcile personal beliefs with the needs of society. At no time is this question more relevant than in periods of war . . .


Brecht's Antigone is a vehement and uncompromising attack on tyranny . . . Brecht uses the Antigone myth as a platform for his economic philosophy. His Chorus expresses concern for the wartime metal shortage in Thebes, and repeatedly asks when the treasure-wagons from Argos will arrive.
