I had to read this play during the summer for an english class, and when I got it, I was suprised how short it was. The play is about a girl [Antigone--pronounced An-tig-oh-knee] that wants to giver her brother a burial that has been forbidden by the King, Creon. The play ends in tragedy, and is in ways similiar to Romeo and Juliet. This was a very good read that will only take you about a day to get through.

Recently, in my highschool, we staged the play Antigone... I'm a lover of Greek tragedy, so I was one happy chick, and tried out right away. I ended up with the part of Creon, although I'm a girl... I guess I auditioned better then I thought, beating out all the guys and landing the role of the protagonist... I found myself adoring this play and every aspect of it. Great action, it makes you think, and the characters are wonderful. I recomend Antigone for anyone in search of a good read! ;)
