From time to time in each of our lives, we face truculent choices, the consequences dire no matter what we choose. How may we discern what is right for us, and how may we face their consequences? Sophocles’ ancient drama brings us back to the conundrums of choice and consequence each of us faces in our quite different journeys.

James Hollis, Ph.D., executive director of the Jung Society of Washington, explores these topics in a pre-performance lecture titled "Antigone's Dilemma: An Introduction to the Universality of Choice and Consequence."

Admission to the lecture is included for ticket holders of that evening's performance of Antigone.
