Christopher Eccleston and Jodie Whittaker star in this Ancient Greek tragedy by Sophocles. Desperate to gain control over a city ravaged by civil war, Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone’s rebellious brother. Outraged, Antigone defies his edict. Creon condemns the young woman, his niece, to be buried alive. The people daren’t object but the prophet Teiresias warns that this tyranny will anger the gods: the rotting corpse is polluting the city.
