Following the events of Oedipus Rex, Sophocles tells the tale of Antigone, a daughter fighting to honour the life of her brother, Polynices, who tragically lost his life fighting for the crown of Thebes. With her uncle, the King, making it law to leave Polynices unburied, will Antigone be able to defy the King to venerate her brother?

A collaboration between Vanier College Productions (VCP) and the Classical Studies Department in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies (LA&PS), join us to witness a tragic tale of fidelity, equity and love for family.
