Storyboard Text

  • Antigone, we are women and our family has had such bad luck. I warn against this, for it is a losing battle. 
  • Anyone who tries to bury Polyneices will be punished by death, for he is to rot on the battlefield for his traitorous actions.
  • Please, Ismene.  Help me bury our brother. it is what the gods would want.
  • I have been sent by Creon to return with the person responsible for Polyneices'  body being ritually prepared. Failing to do so will result in my death.
  • I am not afraid to die if it means Polyneices' riteful burial will be secured.
  • King Creon, I found this one burying  Polyneices.
  • I refuse to deny giving my brother a well-deserved burial.  I know it was against your law, but it was not against my obligations to justice and the law.
  • Antigone is to be executed. Someone find Ismene, for she must have been involved.  I don't know why my son loves you. 
  • I know you told me not to confess to helping bury our brother  because  I didn't do it, but I  confessed anyway because I cannot live without you. I  see now though that I was too late.
  • My son is a woman's slave, for he doesn't care about law and obedience.  Tiresias is only in search of personal profit.  However, he has never been wrong.  I shall release Antigone and bury Polyneices. 
  • Creon, bury Polyneices. Let Antigone live. If you refuse, you will anger the gods resulting in your son's death. 
  • I have many other women, father.  I don't care what you do about Antigone, I do advise that you listen to the advice of other people. If you refuse, you are insane.
  • I have made so many mistakes. Antigone has hanged herself. My son has stabbed himself in anger at me, and my wife's anger at me and grief for her son has killed her.
