06/07: Antigone

Antigone is the third instalment of Sophocles' tragic trilogy of the house of Laius, the legendary king of Thebes. The play details the dramatic death of Antigone, the daughter and sister of cursed Oedipus.

The themes of state versus the individual are explored using our trademark energy and multi characterisation. In a time when an RAF doctor is jailed for defying his government and three Irish sisters seek justice for a dead brother, is the story of Antigone really ancient history?
