Antigone
17 - 21 October, in Maskers' Studio Theatre

by Sophokles, translated by Anne Carson

“I am someone born to share in love not hatred!”

In Anne Carson’s wonderful new translation of this age old tragedy we see a family at war with itself and the State. A family living with the curse of their father Oedipus and now having to decide whether to honour, with burial, a brother killed attacking their city or, as the King wishes, leave him to dogs and birds on the battlefield.

Does the State have the right to tell us what to do or do we, as individuals, have the right to decide our own destiny? It is a question as old as time and as relevant now as it was then.

This translation was first performed in this country to great acclaim in 2015 with Juliette Binoche playing the title role.
