Thebaid, or The Brothers at War

1 - Act 0 - Biographical Notice





"The reign of Louis XIV. in France, like the age of Pericles at ancient Athens, was remarkable for literary excellence no less than for military achievements. Like Euripides, Racine confined himself almost exclusively to tragedy.... It was under Molière's friendly auspices that Racine's first published play, "La Thébaïde," was put upon the stage ... at the Palais Royale, Molière's own theater." The story, very much the opposite of a Moliere farce, describes the battle between the brothers Eteocles and Polynices, and being a proper tragedy does not end well for anyone. (NOTE: Act 0 here is a biography of Racine from the introduction of the Translator's book. The play starts with Act 1.) - Summary by Translator and ToddHW Cast list: Eteocles, King of Thebes: [ToddHW](https://librivox.org/reader/6754) Polynices, brother of Eteocles: [alanmapstone](https://librivox.org/reader/7170) Jocasta, mother of those two princes, and of Antigone: [Sonia](https://librivox.org/reader/10179) Antigone, sister of Eteocles and Polynices: [Lydia](https://librivox.org/reader/8883) Creon, their uncle: [Adrian Stephens](https://librivox.org/reader/13577) Hemon, son of Creon, lover of Antigone: [Tomas Peter](https://librivox.org/reader/10789) Olympia, confidential friend of Jocasta: [Lisanne Lavoie](https://librivox.org/reader/13892) Attalus, confidential friend of Creon: [Adam Bielka](https://librivox.org/reader/13830) A Soldier of the Army of Polynices: [Nemo](https://librivox.org/reader/11535) Stage Directions: [MichaelMaggs](https://librivox.org/reader/12075) Editing: [ToddHW](https://librivox.org/reader/6754)
