A gripping new production of Antigone brings this ancient classic bang up-to-date as a direct response to the ongoing Arab Spring. With leaders across the Middle East struggling to suppress rebellion, Sophocles' drama has a startling relevance in today's world. Featuring a newly commissioned score, a full-scale chorus and a terrific cast including Olivier Award winner Edward Petherbridge, Antigone is an inspiring tale for our times.
