Antigone, Theatre Royal Stratford East Antigone, Theatre Royal Stratford East

When Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone’s unruly brother, her anger quickly turns to defiance. Creon, in an attempt to retain control, condemns her to a torturous death - she’s to be buried alive.

BAFTA Award-winning playwright Roy Williams (Kingston 14, Sucker Punch) returns to Theatre Royal Stratford East with this thrilling and fast-paced new production, based on Sophocles’ acclaimed Greek Classic. Set within an urban, contemporary world, Antigone is a story of loyalty, truth, human nature and what happens when one person stands against the rules.
