PLEASE NOTE: Antigone starts at 7.45pm (evening performances) or 3.15pm (matinees)

Following years of oppressive rule and violent insurgency, the Middle Eastern city-state of Thebes has arrived at a crisis-point. Two brothers, both terrorist bandits, have killed each other in a bloody battle just outside the city. The new ruler, General Kreon, calls in the West to enforce law and order. As dawn breaks over Thebes, Kreon and his Western allies decide enough is enough. One of the brothers will be buried with full honours. The other will be left to rot in the sand.

As the streets begin to return to normal and the dust settles, the last person Kreon expects to defy him is his own niece: Antigone.

Primavera's gripping new production of Antigone brings this ancient classic bang up-to-date. With a full-scale cast and a newly commissioned musical score, Antigone is a terrifying drama for our times about arrogance, courage, and blindness.
