When Antigone defies orders from the state by burying her dead brother, she sets in motion a chain of events that rapidly spirals out of control. This ferociously charged play asks whether family bonds are stronger than civil ones, whether laws must always be enforced and if we truly have control over the decisions we take, testing the human limits of power and love. A new version by Richard Keith and Simon Haines; directed by Richard Keith.
Richard Keith trained and worked as a professional actor and director before coming to Cambridge, including performing at The Globe, the BAC, the Apollo Theatre, West End and directing at various London venues. He continues to teach at drama school and privately: whilst in London he was a member of the Young Vic Genesis Directors programme and The Royal Court Young Writers programme.
