Ancient Greece. 441BC. Two dead brothers. One king. One girl. One shovel. Following the war in Thebes, both of Antigone’s brothers are dead, and her uncle, Creon, is king. One of the brothers is given a proper burial, whilst the other is declared a traitor and forbidden to be buried. Anyone who disobeys is to be killed. But that’s not going to stop Antigone. A radical and fun musical retelling of an Ancient Greek myth, about one young girl standing up to tyranny, packed with humour and super catchy tunes that'll have you humming all the way home!
