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. 


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

Antigone will run at the New Diorama Theatre from 7th January to 1st February 2020, and is supported by Arts Council England. More information and tickets at
