PLOT

A group of Phoenician women on their way to the Sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi, arrive in Thebes and witness the events there. The brothers Eteocles and Polynices had agreed to alternate the government of Thebes every year. At the end of his year however, Eteocles has no intention of handing power to his brother, so Polynices appears with an army from Argos to claim his rights. Jocasta summons her two sons to try to come to an agreement but to no avail. Tiresias, the blind seer, states that the only way to save Thebes is to sacrifice the son of Creon, Menoeceus, who accepts his fate and sacrifices himself. Eteocles and Polynices face each other in a duel, and kill each other. Their mother Jocasta kills herself on their dead bodies
