ANTIGONE

by Kate Rice

Newly-sworn-in President Constantine declares the new law: it is an offence to bury the dead body of insurgent terrorist and failed coup-leader Jason Oldfoot, who assassinated his brother, the former president, Alexander Oldfoot. But in other news, the beautiful Antigone Oldfoot is engaged to marry Constantine's son, Daemon. Antigone tries to bury her fallen brother, Jason. She is caught, but she refuses to compromise. The President has no alternative but to uphold the law and sentence her to death by immurement. A senior party politician eventually succeeds in changing the President's mind, but by then it is too late. (Variable cast - can be done with 6F, 4M)
