Summary
"In Thebans, Liz Lochhead, working from the great dramas of Sophocles, Euripides and Aeschylus, re-tells in a single play the ancient stories of the Kingdom of Thebes: of Oedipus the King, of Jokasta his mother/wife, and of their children, the warring brothers Polyneikes and Eteokles and the sisters Ismene and Antigone, who dies rather than obey Oedipus's successor, King Kreon, her uncle, and leave her brother's corpse unburied."--BOOK JACKET.
