Gripping and credible performance

What made the experience of listening to Antigone (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

The listener is drawn in to an alien but compelling culture. The resolute determination of a strong female protagonist permeates the drama.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Antigone's refusal to abandon convention in the face of death.

over-acted, impossible to get through

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Neutral accents and more subtle acting style would help but mostly I found it impossible to get into the performance because the contemporary north american accents displaced the story/scene


What was most disappointing about Jean Anouilh’s story?

The story is great, the audio is the problem


Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Marvel and Full Cast ’s performances?

No


You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Again I love the story, I just cant listen to the actors. I couldn't even get through scene 1
