The war has ended. Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, learns her brothers are dead.

Forced onto opposing sides, they have killed each other in battle.

When Creon, King of Thebes, grants the honour of a burial to one but not the other, Antigone and her sister must choose where their loyalties lie.

This epic tale of humanity versus leadership centres on a young woman with the courage to defend her beliefs – whatever the cost.

Roy Alexander Weise directs Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney’s bold translation of Sophocles’ Antigone, in a large scale production featuring a chorus of young performers from the Lyric Ensemble.
