When her dead brother is decreed a traitor, his body left unburied beyond the city walls, Antigone refuses to accept this most severe of punishments. Defying her uncle who governs, she dares to say 'No'. Forging ahead with a funeral, she places personal allegiance before politics, a tenacious act that will trigger a cycle of destruction.
'Antigone' is the Mighty Players' Freshers' play for 2015/6 and will take place in Week 4 of Lent term. With the combination of Anne Carson's visceral modern translation, and the wonderfully atmospheric and eerie setting of Selwyn's beautiful Chapel, this promises to be a truly unique and thoroughly engaging piece of theatre.
We hope to see you there!
