Jean Anouilh, “Antigone” – Comédie-Française
Directed by Marc Paquien
For the first time in the Comédie-Française
Théâtre du Vieux-Colombier, September 14, 2012

Reminding us that Anouilh wrote and staged his Antigone during the Occupation, Marc Paquien focuses on the shock this production created. Antigone, a modern woman who frees herself of the myth, speaks to us in a language of incredible simplicity and beauty, a message of resistance that resonates with today’s world.
