“Antigone,” April 23-26

Theatre Columbus State presents “Antigone” – a Greek tragedy addressing issues and challenges we still face in today’s society.

First performed in 441 B.C., "Antigone" depicts the struggles to bury a young man who died fighting for the throne of Thebes. His sister, Antigone, insists on giving him proper funeral rites, in defiance of an order from the new king. Antigone must struggle to follow her own conscience, even if it causes civil disorder.

"Antigone" will be presented in the Nestor Hall Auditorium nightly at 8 p.m. from April 23 through the 26. There's an additional 3 p.m. matinee on April 24. All performances are free.


L to R: Students Halla Jones and Johanna Breiding as Ismene and Antigone in Theatre Columbus State's production of "Antigone."
