Full movie description "The Theban Plays by Sophocles Theban Plays: Antigone":In a final battle for the control of Thebes, Oedipus's two sons kill each other. Creon issues an order that no one is to bury Polynices upon pain of death. But Antigone is determined that her brother's body will have the proper rites of burial.
Reviews of the The Theban Plays by Sophocles Theban Plays: AntigoneThis is an excellent production to use in humanities or literature classes. It gives a sense of what the Ancient Greeks saw in the theatre, while it updates the setting by having the costumes and uniforms suggest a totalitarian state.
Juliette Stevenson, as Antigone, is marvelous, as she portrays a religious martyr, who is just as much a fanatic in her way as King Creon is in his. John Shrapnel, as the autocratic king, shows us a government figure trying to do what is right, but getting caught up in his own hubris until the final tragedies unfold.
The use of the chorus may be off-putting, but the old men making up the chorus have appeared in countless productions of the BBC and their faces are often familiar to Americans. An alternate approach could have been to reduce the chorus to a couple Theban elders, and, while this staging might have been more comfortable for some viewers, overall we would have lost the experience of seeing a chorus function.
