ANTIGONE will be our next full-scale production touring in Autumn 2017
Further to an intense 2 week period of research and development funded by Arts Council England
A brother condemned to walk forever in the shadow of death.
A family teetering on the brink of catastrophe.
A world where one girl dares to take a stand.
This blistering new adaptation sees Sophocles’ tragedy reimagined in a dystopian landscape, where fate is written in code and where drones flock across the skies. Brought to life by innovative theatre company Actors of Dionysus, this production combines bold ideas with passionate and visceral physical theatre.
