Abstract

Pedro de Senna's award-winning "A tragédia de Ismene, princesa de Tebas" (The tragedy of Ismene, princess of Thebes) rescues a forgotten character from the obscurity of history and myth. The play investigates the story of Antigone’s sister Ismene, a minor character in the Theban dramatic and mythological canon, shifting perspectives and telling her story, ten years after Antigone’s death, when the city is again under attack. The play is written in verse, without punctuation, and making abundant use of found text (from Euripides to Shakespeare and Chekov); Ismene is thus re-inscribed into our consciousness through the many voices that make up the piece, with a chance to constructe her own story.
