Amplify Time Productions and New Celts Productions Antigone



All eyes are on the city of Thebes. Antigone dares to raise the question: whose laws matter most – the laws of men or the laws that come from natural or divine justice? In defying the powerful Creon, Antigone’s stance invokes a timeless, moral issue and takes 'civil disobedience' to a very dark place indeed. But what is she? In the eyes of Creon she’s simply a ‘terrorist’. Or is she a moral crusader? A loving sister? A ‘freedom fighter’? Or a death-driven, woman who sacrifices all for a principle?
