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.
