 DEFIANCE

"Building the palace was a mistake. To burn the palace is another. It is a pity that two mistakes do not make it right. And in the end I am the one who is to pay the price!
"

This play is an adaptation of the Greek tragedy, Sophocles’ Antigone. In ancient times, after a bloody revolution, the former tyrannical dynasty has left a magnificent palace behind. The new emperor orders the palace to be burned down, while the daughter of an artisan who died in the construction of the palace, vows to protect this symbol of the people’s sweat and memory. As she sets out to defy the emperor’s order, a fatal confrontation with a tragic end is bound to unfold.
