Antigone

by Sophocles in a version by Bertolt Brecht - Translated by Judith Malina

  • Show Information

Directed by Daniel Buckroyd

Men in power always threaten the fall of the state”

When Thebes’ new ruler, Kreon, decides to stamp his authority on the city by refusing to bury his own nephew for alleged cowardice in battle, he isn’t counting on the determination of Antigone to see her brother laid to rest.

As topical in today’s world of ‘strong man’ leaders as it was when it was when it was first written, Sophocles’ gripping political thriller pits a teenage girl against the power of the state and asks how far we’d be prepared to go to stand up for what we believe is right.

This production is a collaboration between Exeter Northcott Theatre’s professional team and an ensemble of students from University of Exeter Drama Department – this amateur production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.


The performance is sold on a socially-distanced basis.
