A group of Syrian women performed a play entitled "The Syrian Antigone" on the Madina [City] Theater in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, recently.
This play was inspired by the ancient Greek tragedy "Antigone" by Sophocles, depicting the courage of the individual, the power of the human spirit, and what one single person is capable of doing.
This play seeks to change the image of ordinary Syrian women as mere statistics; turning Syrian women into this modern-day's "Antigones."
As some actresses participating in this play describe it to Rozana, this play to them was part of their effort to face their own personal fears. To them, "Antigone" the heroine is now part of every Syrian woman, who choses to defy death with love.
