Storyboard Text

  • "Unfortunately, as you know, his two sons, the princes Eteocles and Polyneices have killed each other in battle." (Sophocles i. 19-21).
  • Prologue: Antigone and Ismene realize their brothers have been killed and they address creon to discuss their burial. 
  • Scene 1: Creon orders a non burial of Polynieces because he is a traitor.
  • "Polynieces I say is to have no burial: no man is to touch him or say the least prayer for him" (Sophocles i. 56-58). 
  • Scene 2:  Sentry brings Antigone to Choragos because she broke the law and buried her brother. Creon questions Antigone and Ismene wanted to take responsibility. She was sated and you could call her an anarchist.  
  • "But can I do nothing? Yes. Save yourself. I shall not envy you" (Sophocles ii. 144-145).
  • Scene 5: Choragos tells Creon that the gods won't be happy with his decision until Antigone is free and Polynieces is buried. He spares her life and buries Polynieces. 
  • "Go quickly: free Antigone from her vault and build a tomb for the body of Polynieces" (Sophocles V. 96-97).
  • Paean: The Chorus celebrates Creon's decision in form of a joyful song.
  • (Singing) "O Iacchos son of Kadmeian Semele O born the Thunder!" (Sophocles Paean. 1-3).
  • Exodus: Antigone is found dead in her vault and Haemon is left in shock and decides to stab himself. Creon is left to realize that if he would've listened instead of being stubborn, no one would have died and his family would still be alive. 
  • "My own blind heart has brought me from darkness to final darkness" (Sophocles Exodus. 87-88).
