Antigone, National Theatre, closes tonight



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, Jamie Ballard and Luke Newberry.
