Based on the mythological Greek drama by Sophocles, Antigone was written by Anouihl during the Nazi occupation of Paris to portray the contrast between the imposition of authority by the Nazis and the rejection of it by the French Resistance, a theme which can find parallels in current struggles in the Middle East and elsewhere. On another level, in the discussions between Antigone and Creon, we witness the defiance of a determined young woman to the stifling domination of a male superior.
