Event description
David McDougall and Tommy Collison lead a discussion on family, grief, and the laws of man, drawing on the play Antigone by Sophocles

About this Event

In the second Salon of the Reading the Greats series, ii Hosts Tommy Collison and David McDougall discuss Antigone and its relevance to our contemporary lives.

“Good lives are made so by discipline.” — Creon, Antigone

What do we owe the dead? How do we choose between doing what’s right and what’s legal? Whose actions are justified? Who indeed lives, dies, and tells our stories?

David McDougall and Tommy Collison lead a discussion on family, grief, and the laws of man as part of a discussion of one of Western literature’s first and finest examples of civil disobedience: the play Antigone, by Sophocles.

We expect (and hope!) that you'll find the Salon engaging and rewarding even with little to no familiarity of books under discussion.
