Antigone by Sophocles, directed by Chris Taylor
A civil-war zone. Shattered masonry; ruined buildings. Women outraged at needless slaughter. Helmeted troops heavily armed. 2018? Syria? Yemen?
No, this is 450BC Thebes in ancient Greece.
Antigone, frighteningly relevant, disturbingly patriarchal. This tragedy, performed with masks, tells the story of one of the world’s greatest ever heroines.
