Jean Anouilh’s:
Antigone
Antigone goes to the battlefield in front of Thebes, pouring
sand over Polyneices' body and performing burial rites. She
allows herself to be captured after coming out of hiding
when some guards try to brush off the dust, and a defiant
Antigone is brought to Creona. Stunned that a woman
would dare to disobey her orders, she imprisons Antigone
declaring that she shall be executed. Soon after, Creona's
son Haemon pleads for Antigone's release because he is
engaged to marry her, although his arrogant mother mocks
him, ignoring his worries. An angry Haemon runs away, hurt
that his mother has treated him like this.
Summary
After King Oedipus was exiled from the city of Thebes
when he learned that he had committed incest and patricide, his younger son Eteocles claimed that the kingship belonged to him, exiling his older brother Polyneices. Polyneices then attacked Thebes with a massive army, but neither son won because they killed each other in battle. The
new Theban queen, Creona, declares that Eteocles will be
buried and honored as a hero while Polyneices' body will
rot away and be eaten by dogs in disgrace; the penalty for
trying to bury the body is death. Hearing this news, an angry
Antigone insists that her brother's body must be buried so
that his spirit can rest in peace, in spite of the cautious advice of her younger sister, Ismene.
Jean Anouilh’s Antigone is an adaptation of Sophocles’ tragic
play of the same title. Written in 1942, when Nazi forces
occupied France, the story revolves around the conflict between the idealist Antigone and her rigid uncle, Creon,
over the proper burial of Antigone’s brother, Polynices.
The play was also interpreted to represent the struggle of
the French Resistance movement against the forces of the
Vichy government during the height of Nazi occupation.
Summary
Antigone is one in a series of Anouilh’s plays based on
Greek mythology. Disillusioned and shocked by the events
of World War II, he also wrote Eurydice (1942) and Médée
(first performed in 1937; published 1946), which were also
adapted versions of the original Greek classics. These plays
explored the role of destiny in people’s lives.
Often considered his masterpiece, Antigone cemented
Anouilh’s reputation as a dramatist. The play was an instant
success when it was first staged in Paris in 1944.

Summary: http://www.enotes.com/antigone-jean/
Sophocles’:
Antigone
Then Creona changes her mind abruptly, deciding to execute only Antigone since Ismene's innocence is clear, and
the older sister is thus sent outside of Thebes to starve to
death in a cave. While Antigone is suffering this unfortunate
fate, the blind prophet Teresa warns Creona that the gods
are very angry that she has refused burial for Polyneices,
since the very same dogs and birds that eat his flesh are
later used for sacrifices. As a result, Creona's son will die in
punishment, she declares. Mocking Teresa, Creona does not
listen to this advice, saying that Teresa just wants to scare
him. However, she finally agrees to bury the slain man after
the Chorus of Theban citizens reminds him that Teresa has
never been wrong about anything.
Now worried about her son, Creona washes Polyneices'
body, performs burial rites, and cremates the body's remains. Then she goes to free Antigone from the cave where
she is imprisoned, but it is too late to avoid tragedy: she has
hung herself by a rope, and Haemon stands weeping beneath
her. After trying to attack Creona, Haemon stabs himself
and dies holding Antigone's body in his arms. A broken
woman, Creona returns to the palace only to learn that her
husband Eurydices has also committed suicide after learning
about his son's death. Creona is led away by her citizens,
lamenting, wishing for the release from suffering that only
death can give her. The story of Antigone focuses on the role
of the ruler in a city, providing a model for all of the bad
qualities that a ruler should not have, lest she be punished
terribly as Creona was in the end. Moreover, the gods must
always be respected by everyone.

Sophocles
Biography: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Anouilh
This is the essence of what Jean Anouilh offers us: a battle between idealism and realism - a man, a hopeless romantic, is locked in a perpetual battle
against a society that is hostile to his purity. In his Pièces Roses, the protagonist finds a compromise. Not an ideal one, but an acceptable accommodation with which he can live his life. But in Anouilh's 'Pièces Noires', the
battle is lost from the beginning and the character is doomed to a harrowing fate.
SOPHOCLES, the son of Sophilus, was born at Colonus, a village about
one mile from Athens, in 495 B.C., five years before Marathon, and fifteen
before Salamis. He died just before the disastrous close of the Peloponnesian war. He was by a generation younger than Æschylus, and somewhat
older than Euripides. His father, a substantial man of business, gave him
the best education. His beauty, grace, skill, and charm, made him, as a
youth, the mirror of his time; and at the celebration of the victory of Salamis, he was chosen, then aged 15, to lead the choir with his lyre. At the
age of 27, he defeated Æschylus for the tragic prize in a memorable contest. From thenceforth till his death, more than 60 years later, he continued to produce, it is said, 113 dramas, gaining the first prize 20 times. At
the age of 55, he was, with Pericles, one of the generals in command at
Samos; and at the age of 82 he was (probably) one of ten commissioners
who finally superseded the democracy. But his military and political career
were honorary, and we have no record of his ever being more than a
popular and honourable citizen. He died in his 90th year, just before the
catastrophe of his country, having long been the model of the Attic culture and perfection of its highest mark. He is famed for being the type of
"sweetness and light," as conceived in the golden age of Athens, the man
of "sweet temper," of consummate grace, and of uniform balance of mind.
Sophocles marks the passage from the drama as a religious institution to
the drama as a work of pure art. He made the great step in advance of
adding a third speaker to the second of Æschylus; and this was, evidently,
essential to the full development of the dramatic ideal. The plot, and the
elaborate evolution of character and situation in his plays, are artistically a
great advance upon the simple conceptions of Æschylus; and, in discarding
the trilogy, he was able to make each drama a highly complex and refined
study of character in action. Hence, by his contemporaries at Athens, and,
perhaps, by the ancients, Sophocles was regarded as the perfection of the
tragic poet. Oedipus the King was taken by Aristotle as the type of true
tragedy. And other critics have called it "the masterpiece of Attic tragedy."
As a work of consummate art, it is perhaps the most perfect tragedy extant. In the same way, all the seven plays of Sophocles which survive are
examples of supreme skill in painting character, and in the combination of
tragic situations. But the poet is no longer, as in the Trilogy, hero, prophet, and preacher; he is simply the faultless artist.
Biography: http://www.usefultrivia.com/biographies/sophocles_001.html
In many of his plays, Jean Anouilh presents his reader with a striking and
ineluctable dichotomy between idealism and realism. Pucciani tells us that
"in Anouilh, no middle ground of ambiguity exists where this conflict is
resolved." This can be seen in his play Le Voyageur Sans Bagage, where the
main character Gaston, is a WWI veteran who suffers from amnesia. He
does not remember his past that was filled with his moral depravity (he
slept with his brother's wife and severely injured his best friend, among
examples). This moral depravity is invariably at odds with the extreme
purity that he now exhibits and is the antithesis of his past. In another play
L'Hermine, the main character finds himself in a world hostile to his romantic idealism. In L'Hermine, love is made to fight an inexorable and futile
battle against money, social status, ambition, and lax morals.
He attended école primaire supérieure where he received his secondary
education at the Collège Chaptal. Jean-Louis Barrault, later a major French
director, was a pupil there at the same time and recalls Anouilh as an intense, rather dandified figure who hardly noticed a boy some two years
younger than himself. Anouilh enrolled as a law student in the University of
Paris, only to abandon the course after just eighteen months when he
found employment in the advertising industry. He liked the work and spoke
more than once with wry approval of the lessons in the classical virtues of
brevity and precision of language he learned while drafting copy. Overall, he
has written thirty plays which have been recognized and performed worldwide.
Anouilh was born in Cérisole, a small village on the outskirts of Bordeaux
and had Basque ancestry. His father was a tailor and Anouilh maintained
that he inherited from him a pride in conscientious craftmanship. He may
owe his artistic bent to his mother, a violinist who supplemented the family's meager income by playing summer seasons in the casino orchestra in
the nearby seaside resort of Arcachon.

Good evening. I am Tomek and I have a crush on theatre. I always considered myself

This being my second major Gonzaga Players production, I knew what I was getting into. I
knew the road would be bumpy, the lines would be tedious, the rehearsals would be long,
and the blocking would be awkward; but I also knew it would be all worth it. In our short
time together, the cast and I have all developed a bond that can only come from a common love of theatre. This year's production Antigone has been a tough journey, but I
wouldn't trade it for the world. Break a leg Players!
