Antigone: 1940’s Adaptation

Antigone: 1940’s Adaptation: Jean Anouilh’s adaptation of Sophocles’ Antigone brings a new perspective to the Greek tragedy. This version of the classic story of Antigone’s rebellion was produced in the context of the anti-fascist French resistance during Nazi Germany’s occupation in the 1940’s. Antigone’s rebellion against her tyrannical uncle, Creon, is cast in new light with Anouilh’s subtext of French resistance against fascist powers.
