Storyboard Text

  • Antigone and Ismene are talking outside of the palace, discussing the burial of Polyneices.
  • I think we should bury Polyneices. It would be the right thing to do as a family.
  • No.
  • Antigone and Ismene are still talking.
  • "There it is,/ And now you can prove what you are:/ A true sister, or a traitor to your family" (Sophocles Prologue. 25-7).
  • No, Antigone! How could I do this, blatantly disobeying the law? "We are only women,/ We cannot fight with men, Antigone! (Sophocles Prologue. 46-8).
  • They have not yet concluded their long lasting conversation.
  • “But I will bury him: and if I must die, / I say that this crime is holy: I shall lie down / With him in death and I shall be as dear / To him as he to me” (Sophocles Prologue. 55-7).
  • That is your decision, however, I cannot allow myself to partake in this unlawful act.
  • Creon is talking about his morals, and how he would be a great leader.
  • I am the best person in the world. I bet that none of you could think of anyone that would be a beter leader than me.
  • The sentry comes to deliver bad news to Creon.
  • Sentry, you must find the man who has done this, and bring them to me, or you shall be killed yourself.
  • Creon, I must bring you bad news. Polyneices is now covered in dust.
  • The sentry will try to find the man that did this to Polyneices.
  • “Find that man, bring him here to me, or your death/ Will be the least of your problems” (Sophocles i.152-3).
  • Okay sir, I shall do my best.
