Adapted for radio by Merlin Thomas and Frank Hauser from the translation by Lewis Gelantiere
Produced by Frank Hauser
All sorts of very odd things have been said about Jean Anouilh's play Antigone, first played in Paris in 1944, but it it really a perfectly simple, straightforward tragedy..... He takes the Greek story of Antigone and tells it as a Greek story — the scene is still Thebes — but with deliberate anachronisms, so that the characters speak much as they would today. In much the same way Racine made his characters from antiquity use the French of the seventeenth century. M.T.

Haemon, his son:
