A contemporary translation of the classic Greek drama that asks, “How do we care for the dead and how we do grieve amidst crisis?,” Antigonick is translated and strangely reimagined by the inimitable Classics scholar and award-winning poet, Anne Carson.

Antigonick stretches the boundaries of story in poetry and theater. It asks, “What can one woman do in the face of unjust laws?” and "What is she willing to sacrifice?" In this time worn story, Carson points to the lessons we’re meant to learn from our past, yet somehow fail to remember.
