THE BURIAL AT THEBES

Genre: Drama
by Seamus Heaney

A version of Sophocles' Antigone

In a New York premiere, Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaneyinfuses with new fire this ancient drama of blood loyaltycolliding with the muscle of state authority "In Heaney's version, the drama is a quick, taut, invigorating read that promises to play well on the stage . . . Heaney's vision of the ethical dilemma of ancient Thebes is lucidly rendered." —Jamie James, Los Angeles Times"
