“Antigone at the Wall”, adapted by Ruff Yeager from “Antigone” by Sophocles, presents a world overrun by a pandemic of a dangerous virus. Creon, the president of Thebes, has built a wall to keep the virus from decimating his city and has ordered that any who die must be thrown outside the city walls to languish without burial. His nephew dies of the virus and the corpse is remanded to a cruel exile but Antigone, the dead man’s sister and the president’s niece, insists on burying her beloved brother, defying her uncle’s newly minted executive order. A generational power struggle ensues as Antigone stands trial in a case of God’s Law versus Man’s Law - the outcome of which will threaten to destroy the nation’s most powerful family and devastate the city.
