Antigone, National Theatre

Cut and pasted from the National Theatre Website:

Antigone by Sophocles
In a version by Don Taylor, directed by Polly Findlay.

Desperate to gain control over a city ravaged by civil war, Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone’s rebellious brother. Outraged, she defies his edict. Creon condemns the young woman, his niece, to be buried alive.

The people daren’t object but the prophet Teiresias warns that this tyranny will anger the gods: the rotting corpse is polluting the city.

Creon hesitates and his fate is sealed.

Starring Jodie Whittaker, Christopher Eccleston and Jamie Ballard.

Raks's Reaction

I saw this on Saturday 9 June and was totally and utterly blown away by it. The production was OUTSTANDING and I loved it. It made my heart race and it had me on the edge of my seat. It reminded me of Ralph Fiennes's Coriolanus in many ways. I will post a full review once I have seen it for the second time.
