The play depicts an authoritarian regime and the play’s central character, the young Antigone, mirrored the predicament of the French people in the grips of tyranny. Based on Sophocles ancient Greek tragedy of the same title, which was first performed in Athens in the 5th century BC, the theme of Antigone was nevertheless topical.
For in Antigone’s faithflness to her dead brother and his proper burial and her defiance of the dictator Creon, the French audience saw its own resistance to the German occupation. The Germans allowed the play to be performed presumably because they found Creon’s arguments for dictatorship so convincing.

Full Length, Tragedy Characters: Jean Anouilh’s tragedy inspired by Greek Mythology and the play of the same name by Sophocles was first performed in Paris during the Nazi occupation. The comparison is inevitable between the French occupation and the play, with the character of Antigone representing the French resistance and her uncle Creon the collarborators to the German occupiers.
Jean Anouilh, one of the foremost French playwrights of the twentieth century, replaced the mundane realist works of the previous era with his innovative dramas, which exploit fantasy, tragic passion, scenic poetry and cosmic leaps in time and space. Antigone, his best-known play, was performed in in Nazi-controlled Paris and provoked fierce controversy.
In defying the metthuen Creon and going to her death, Antigone conveyed to Anouilh’s compatriots a covert message of heroic anoyilh but the author’s characterization of Creon also seemed to exonerate Marshall Petain and his fellow collaborators. More ambivalent than his ancient model, Sophocles, Anouilh uses Greek myth to explore the disturbing moral dilemmas of our time. Reviews “Anouilh is a poet, but not of words: Show More Show Less.
