Creon, I have bad news. I had a vision. Bad things are going to happen and it's your fault. All men make mistakes, but a good man admits his errors. The Gods want you to bury Polynieces.
No!!!! You're wrong this is nonsense! Someone must be paying you.
And you are King because of me. You will get what you deserve. I'm out.
But Kings have often tried to trick people into thinking brass is gold.
Yeah! Prophets love gold.
I am your King!
You need to free Antigone and build a tomb for Polyneices.
Okay on second thought maybe I was wrong what do I do.
Okay let's do that.
The blind prophet Teiresias visits Creon. Creon says he is in debt to Teiresias and listens to his prophecy. The prophet implies that the gods are angry with Creon and bad thing will happen to Thebes. Creon does not want to believe it.
The two argue more and then Teiresias is sick of talking to Creon and leaves.
Oops now the Queen is dead.
I have been foolish! I have killed my son and wife. This is all my fault...
Creon realizes he is wrong and has been stubborn. He listens to the Choragus and goes to free Antigone and build a tomb for Polyneices.
There is no happiness where there is no wisdom; No wisdom but in submission to the gods. Big words are always punished, And proud men in old age learn to be wise.
A messenger comes with news for the Chorus and Queen. When he and Creon went to the tomb, Antigone had hung herself and Haemon was crying. He tried to stab Creon. He missed and then stabbed himself. The Queen leaves.
The Queen stabbed herself rip.
Creon has realized his errors, but it is too late. The Choragus speaks the final words of the play, stating the major theme.
