Roles

Role M/F Age Description
Antigone (An-Tig-Uh-Nee) F 16-25 Part of the Theban ruling family. Sister of recently killed Polyneices, whose burial has been forbidden. She is young, impulsive, and absolutely sure of her convictions.
Ismene (Iz-Mee-Nee) F 20-30 Sister of Antigone. Older than Antigone, she is more pragmatic, more cautious, more level-headed.
Creon (Kree-Awn) M 40-69 Newly appointed ruler of Thebes. Uncle to the recently deceased previous ruler Eteocles, the rebellious Polyneices, Antigone and Ismene. He is an old school statesman through and through, and has been present during many of the city?s troubles. He has twice before acted as leader in emergency circumstances, and has again accepted the burden of leadership. He trusts very much in his own judgement.
Official M 25-35 In the service of Creon. An ordinary official of Thebes who has found themselves in the position of delivering news they have no wish to deliver. They do not quite know what to say.
Haemon (Hai-Morn) M 18-25 The son of Creon and Eurydike. Engaged to Antigone. He is very supportive of his father and wants what?s best for him – even if that means telling him some hard truths.
Teiresias (Tie-Ree-Zee-Uhs) M 60+ Older than Creon. A very old religious figure in Thebes – they are blind and supposedly have the ability to see the future as compensation from the gods. They have lived through many of the disastrous events in Thebes? history and advised many of the city?s rulers, including Creon?s great-grandfather.
Eurydike (You-Rid-Ih-Kee) F 30-49 Creon?s wife. She stays away from Creon?s political decision making but cannot ultimately escape the resulting consequences.
A Chorus Of Theban Citizens M/F Mixed ages, ordinary people who live in the city and are attempting to make sense of the recent war that has blazed so close to them. Antigone and Creon?s conflict unfolds on their doorsteps – they witness the action and respond to it. They reflect on events as they happen, sometimes together, sometimes individually. The story is thus seen through their eyes.
