Greek Readers Theater: Antigone

Friday, Aug. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

Weekley Community Center

Let your imagination run wild as actors set the scene for this classic Sophocles play. Antigone, the daughter of King Oedipus, stands up against an immoral law, risking her life in the process. As Antigone defies the law, proudly standing up for her beliefs, the audience questions whether morality is defined by laws or by personal convictions and virtues.
