A.R. Gurney brilliantly parallels his play with the Greek tragedy Antigone by Sophocles, transposing the action from ancient Greece to a modern American university in the 1980s where the characters become Judy Miller, a brilliant, headstrong Jewish student and Henry Harper, an unyielding authoritarian professor of Greek Classics. A battle of wills ensues when Harper rejects her term paper, a play in which she takes it upon herself to rewrite Antigone in the context of the nuclear arms race.  Judy's protest to the university grievance committee escalates into an examination of reports of low enrollment in Harper's courses and student reports of anti-Semitism that pose a threat to his career.
