Performing Seamus Heaney’s translation and featuring a chorus of young performers emulating the traditional Greek style Antigone faces a family decision with life-changing consequences, but who will she side with?

The cast is completed by Nick Fletcher, Ruth Redman, Simon de Deney, Kwong Loke, Alexander Campbell, Pascale Kann, Jessica Mannion, Ethan Peters, Caleb Rowan and Westerfield Shoderu.
There will be a post-show question and answer session on 28th April and 5th May.
