A contemporary retelling of the story of Antigone, her siblings and her city, specially commissioned for Guildhall School.
This epic and lyrical reimagining of the classic Greek tragedy mixes ancient legend with modern perspective, resulting in a powerful exploration of generational damage, sisterly devotion and how we find hope in the most desperate of places.
Written by Olivier Award winner Stef Smith, Antigone is Guildhall’s first production directed by the School’s multi-award winning new Vice-Principal & Director of Drama, Orla O’Loughlin.
