After a case of sibling rivalry culminates in civil war, King Creon of Thebes forbids anyone from burying the traitor who started it. His niece, Antigone, discontent to let her brother go without proper funeral rites, takes matters into her own hands. In doing so, she sparks a family feud that pits father against son, sister against sister, and civil law against the gods. Antigone is the third of three Theban plays, called the Oedipus Plays, and was written around 441 BCE. The author, Sophocles, was born around 496 BCE near Athens. In this lifetime, he composed between 123 and 130 plays, of which more than 100 are known to us by their titles and by fragments. He was widely considered to be the most perfect of tragedians by his contemporaries. The themes present in Antigone still resonate today, invoking questions of what constitutes justice, whether civil disobedience is ever justified, and the limits of familial duty. In this fresh and vibrant take on an ancient classic, high school students will read, study, and perform a classic piece of literature. Designed to complement the academics of homeschooled high school students, a certificate of completion will be provided at the end of the class for students to add to their homeschool portfolios. The last class will also end in a staged show for friends and family!
