Product Description:

This 1972 stage adaptation of Sophocles' famous tragedy is propelled by the captivating performance of the distinguished actress Genevieve Bujold in the title role. The story of Antigone's defiance against King Creon when he attempts to stop her from burying her dead brother, director Gerald Freedman highlights the confrontation by setting the two characters at opposite ends of a long table. Tragic and moving, this adaptation of a timeless tale resonates deeply.

Description by Image Entertainment:

With fierce originality, this powerful adaptation of the Sophocles tragedy presents a world of honor, treachery and fateful consequences. Acclaimed actress Genevieve Bujold skillfully combines elements of zealotry and idealism in her affecting portrait of Antigone. Jean Anouilh's retelling of "Antigone" stages the inescapably wrenching central confrontation between Antigone and Creon by presenting Bujold and Fritz Weaver seated at a long, executive-suite table--a hallmark of Anouilh's play. The New York Times critic, John J. O'Connor, lauded this "Antigone" as "well acted, well directed and beautifully staged."
