Details: 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 Miss Bujold and Mr. 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." Starring: Genevieve Bujold, Stacy Keach, and Fritz Weaver.
