The war is over. 

The dead have been buried. The traitors have been punished. People feel more alive than they have in a long time. They are ready to start again. 

But Antigone is not. She will not move on, and she will not forget. She will drag everyone back if she has to. Anything to get justice for her brother.  

Lulu Raczka’s searing adaptation hands the reins of Sophocles’ classic text to the young people at the heart of the play creating something messy, irreverent and vital.

Antigone is supported by Arts Council England.
