“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.
Directed by Daniel Buckroyd.
