Barter Players present Antigone at Lee Theatre


The Barter Players will stage Antigone, a play adapted by Catherine Bush from Sophocles, for seventh-graders and up at 7 p.m. on March 11 at Lee Theatre in Pennington Gap, Virginia.

Admission is free for everyone.

Antigone’s beloved brother, Polynices, lies dead on the field of battle, accused of treachery and denied a hero’s burial. Antigone’s uncle, King Creon, has decreed that anyone caught trying to bury the traitor will be put to death. Will Antigone defy her uncle and risk her life to pay tribute to her brother’s memory?

Don’t miss this chance to see Sophocles’ ancient tragedy brought to life in this beautiful production by The Barter Players.

Sponsored by Pro-Art Association as part of the Lee County Cultural Arts Series, the program is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and National Endowment for the Arts.
