by Chuck Roe

Two feuding brothers are killed in battle and Madam Creon becomes president of Thebes.  The brothers’ sister, Antigone, wants to honor one in public through social media, even though the new Madam President has forbidden it.  What follows is the battle between following law when it goes against your beliefs or following your heart.  Madam Creon and Antigone battle it out amongst a chorus of news reporters and influencers all in the public eye through news and social media.  Creon’s power and tenacity brings more tragedy and death to Thebes.
