    "An exemplary piece of amateur theatre" [Varsity - 4 Stars]

    Sophocles' masterpiece is brought to life in this, Blake Morrison's vivid and brilliant translation and adaptation of the third Theban Play.

    Oedipus, by this time dead and gone, had two sons. One lies in state, waiting for a funeral with full honours for fighting with his city, while his brother lies on the dirt where he fell, rotting carrion for the birds, after he fought against it. Their fates are Creon's law. But Oedipus's daughter, Antigone, cannot suffer this last outrage on her family's honour, and she risks death from the state to follow Godly law (burying her treacherous brother). The question is, will Creon realise his mistake and retract his inhumane law in time to save his own family?
