About this Event

Edward Nesbit’s retelling of the Greek myth of Antigone presents three snapshots from the life Antigone (Rosie Middleton) from her childhood to her death at the hands of Creon (Oliver Brignall). Polynices, Antigone's brother, has died in battle and has been declared a traitor. Creon has ordered that the body of Polynices should not be buried, but should be abandoned to be eaten by birds. Antigone boldly decides to defy Creon's order - with disastrous consequences.
