Sophocles classic tragedy presents the dilemma of following the law or
one’s beliefs. Antigone and her sister, Ismene, decide to return to Thebes with
the intention of helping their brothers avoid a prophecy that predicts they
will kill each other in a battle for the throne of Thebes. But upon her
arrival, Antigone learns that both of her brothers are dead. Eteocles has been given a
proper burial, but Creon, Antigone’s uncle who has inherited the throne, has
issued a royal edict banning the burial of Polyneices, who he believes was a
traitor. Antigone defies the law, buries her brother, and is caught. See how a
lack of balance in beliefs and actions plays out in this classic Greek story.
