Antigone – 2014

  • Show Information

When Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone’s unruly brother, her anger quickly turns to defiance. Creon, in an attempt to retain control, condemns her to a torturous death – she’s to be buried alive.
Acclaimed playwright, Roy Williams (Kingston 14, Sucker Punch), takes Sophocles’ play and by placing it into a contemporary setting brings Thebes into the 21st Century, reinforcing this tales relevance and vitality.
This is a timeless story about loyalty and truth, human nature and human behaviour. It is a story about what happens when one person stands against the rules. About how we make meaning out of life and death and what, in the end, really matters.
