Antigone : Sophocles, Paperback / softback Book

Antigone : Sophocles Paperback / softback

Part of the Modern Plays series

Paperback / softback

Description

When Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone's unruly brother, Antigone's anger quickly turns to defiance.

Creon condemns her to a torturous death: she's to be buried alive. Acclaimed playwright Roy Williams takes Sophocles' play and, by placing it into a contemporary setting, brings this classic tale vividly to life. A timeless story about loyalty and truth, about how we make meaning out of life and death, and what in the end really does matter. Roy Williams's adaptation of Antigone received its world premiere on 19 September at Derby Theatre, in a co-production between Pilot Theatre, Derby Theatre and Theatre Royal, Stratford East, before going on a national tour.
