Antigone (working title)
Written by Stef Smith
Orla O’Loughlin director
This 21st-century re-imagining of Sophocles’ Antigone tells the story of a city in turmoil as political and familial power struggles wreak tragedy upon tragedy. This epic, lyrical and utterly contemporary exploration of the classic Greek play mixes ancient legend with modern perspective, resulting in a powerful exploration of generational impact, sisterly devotion and how we find hope in the most desperate of places.
A world premiere written specially for Guildhall by Olivier Award winner Stef Smith and directed by Vice-Principal & Director of Drama Orla O'Loughlin.
Available in December from Barbican Box Office
