“In world literature no dissent from mundanity has been more trenchant than Antigone’s”.
This is the story of a girl who challenged the state and invited death as she could not abide with mediocrity and conformity. There is triumph & disaster, kindness & cruelty and love & hate all intricately woven together in this masterpiece. This is one of the major dramas of our time, translated into Irish for the first time and produced by the newly formed theatre company, Splódar.
