Storyboard Text

  • Prologue: Eteocles and Polyneices kill each other. Eteocles is given a proper burial, but Polyneices is seen as a traitor and not given a proper burial.
  • Creon is furious after Polyneices' betrayal against Thebes.
  • "I could never stand by silent, watching destruction march against our city, putting safety to rot, nor could I ever make that man a friend of mine who menaces our country." (207-210)
  • "And still you had the gall to break the law?"
  • "Of course I did. It wasn't Zeus, not in the least, who made this proclamation--not to me... Nor did I think your edict had such force that you, a mere mortal, could override the gods."
  • Antigone buries Polyneices, against Creon's order. And she is sentenced to death.
  • "Now don't, please, be quite so singe-minded, self-involved, or assume the world is wrong and you are right."
  • Haemon tries to be the voice of reason and show his father, Creon, his faults.
  • "This boy, I do believe, is fighting on her side, the women's side."
  • Antigone is marched to her death, and begins to regret her decision to disobey Creon.
  • "Look at me, men of my fatherland, setting out on the last road looking into the last light of day the last I will ever see..."
  • "Stubbornness brands you for stupidity--- pride is a crime."
  • Creon decides to set Antigone free after he is given advice from the blind prophet. But, when he goes to set her free he finds her dead, with Haemon commiting suicide shortly after.
  • "I'll set her free myself. I am afraid... it's best to keep the established laws to the very day we die."
