A Greek Tragedy by Sophocles
The St. James Players is proud to present our 2023 production of Antigone by Sophocles. The story follows the attempts of Antigone to bury the body of her brother going against the decision of her uncle and placing her relationship with her brother above human laws. Antigone is an Athenian tragedy written by Sophocles in 441 BC and first performed at the Festival of Dionysus of the same year. It is thought to be the second oldest surviving play of Sophocles, preceded by Ajax, which was written around the same period.
All performances will take place at St. James Church in Upper Montclair (581 Valley Rd.).
