Sophocles, adapted by Kerry Frampton and Mal Smith for Splendid Productions
This show has now finished

It's party time in Thebes! The war is over, the city has a new leader… what could possibly go wrong? Enter Antigone - devoted daughter and passionate extremist – set to spoil her uncle, the new King Creon's party. Whether you're a connoisseur of the classics, or clueless to them, this modern adaptation is both outrageously fun and highly accessible. Fusing naturalism with stylish physicality, the performance is a true showcase of the timeless tragedy and quick-witted satire of Sophocles' masterpiece. An ancient play about here and now. Audience participation is encouraged.

‘It’s informative and gently educational, and more than that, it’s fun ... catch it before it’s gone’
