Antigone archiveTwo 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. TAG has commissioned Sarah Woods to create a lucid and powerful new adaptation of Sophocles' classic drama which is aimed at audiences aged 14 and over and is especially relevant to young people, a constituency who are traditionally regarded as excluded from the political world. Antigone has an associated education programme - for further details of this or for information on schools reservations contact Karen Douglas at TAG on 0141 552 4949.
