  • The curse of Oedipus incestual family lives on. In Thebes, two brothers, Polynecies, the traitor, and Eteocles, the king, kill each other in Polynecies desperate attempt to take the throne. They leave their ignorant Uncle Creon in power. King Creon bands the burial of the traitor Polynecies, this condems Polynecies spirit to wander for eternity, which is a fate worse than hell.

  • Antigone is caught burying the body by the Thebian guards, and King Creon sentences her to death.
  • It's your fault she's dead!!
  • Haimon, Antigone's fiancee and Creon's son, argues with his father.

After Creon said he was still going to kill Antigone, Haimon storms out threatening that Antigone's death will cause another.
