The body of Polynices, Antigone's brother, has been ordered to remain unburied by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Antigone defies the law, sealing her fate.

Gripping and credible performance
The listener is drawn in to an alien but compelling culture. The resolute determination of a strong female protagonist permeates the drama.
Antigone's refusal to abandon convention in the face of death.

over-acted, impossible to get through
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
The story is great, the audio is the problem
Again I love the story, I just cant listen to the actors. I couldn't even get through scene 1
