Two brothers, Polyneikes and Eteocles, fight for the crown of Thebes. They kill each other. The rule is strict and clear: whoever dares to bury Polyneikes will be punished with death. Antigone cannot accept the laws that leave one of her brothers unburied and humiliated. State against Ideals, a young woman against a monarch, the whole town, us, inside the arena. How do you get a diamond out of a stone? 'I was born to love, not hate', states Antigone. And there is always a cost for it.Performers Jodie Whittaker (Antigone), Christopher Eccleston (Creon), Zoe Aldrich (Eurydice), Jamie Ballard (Teiresias), Jason Cheater (Chorus), Stavros Demetraki (Chorus), Jo Dockery (Understudy Ismene/Eurydice), Paul Dodds (Chorus), Michael Grady-Hall (Chorus), Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Messenger), Luke Newberry (Haemon), Luke Norris (Soldier), Annabel Scholey (Ismene), Martin Chamberlain, Craige Els, Alfred Enoch, Emily Glenister, Tim Samuels, Ross Walton, Paul Bentall, Trevor Imani, Reuben Pearce, Daniel Walsh.
