But you went on and did it anyway...
Yes, I did.
The 2012 film version of DCCWW's very first (2001) stage adaptation of Sophocles' 441 BCE tragedy.
King Creon must establish and maintain the rule of law, now that his nephews' power-sharing arrangement has exploded into civil war, which ended tragically with the two brothers killing each other and their uncle taking power. In a gesture to establish the new order, Creon has declared one brother a hero and the other a traitor, and forbid (on pain of death) that the latter be buried.
His niece Antigone has other ideas, and repeatedly sneaks out to the battle field to sprinkle dust over her brother's body. She is arrested and, along with her sister Ismene, confronts her uncle.
Written and performed by Hart middle schoolers in 2001, this production features the middle schoolers of 2012 in the film version. The original writers of the script are now high school graduates, many of whom still return regularly to DC Creative Writing Workshop, to mentor the new generation.
Part of a year-long film project reviving three favorite plays of DCCWW's first 9 years, when the plays were originally performed exclusively on stage.
