Storyboard Text

  • I'm still going to, will you help me? It would be perverse to leave his body out there to be defiled by birds and dogs!
  • I can't believe Creon said we can't bury Polyneices.
  • “There it is,/ And now you can prove what you are:/ A true sister, or a traitor to your family” (Sophocles Prologue. 25-7).
  • “We are only women,/ We cannot fight with men, Antigone!” (Sophocles Prologue.46-8).
  • Antigone and Ismene talk about how unfair it is that they can't bury their brother, Polyneices, because Creon decreed that if anyone did they would be sentenced to death.
  • "This is my command, and you can see the wisdom behind it. As/ long as I am King, no traitor is going to be honored with the loyal/ man." (Sophocles i. 174-6)
  • Antigone reveals her plans to bury him anyway, and asks Ismene to help. Ismene says no because she is afraid of the repercussions
  • Polyneices and his brother, Eteocles, faced off on the battle field, one attacking Thebes, the other defending it
  • I have terrible news! It wasn't me, but someone buried Polyneices.
  • It must have been a man who did this!
  • Both brothers are killed in battle and Creon decrees that Eteocles will be buried with military honors, but no one is allowed to bury or move Polyneice's body because he was a traitor.
  • Creon comes and gives a speech to the chorus about how good of a king he will be. He also talks about how much he hates Polyneices.
  • A sentry comes and informs Creon that someone has buried Polynieces' body
