What's Antigone by Sophocles (497 BCE - 406 BCE) about?

This is the final installment in Sophocles' Theban Plays, following Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus.

She clashes with Creon, the King of Thebes, over what constitutes justice and morality: the laws of the state or the laws of the individual.
