Leads are Adam Boyd and the capable Lorna Dobson.
In Gaston's version the year is 2024 and the buildings are in ruins. King Creon's power gives way to pride as he refuses proper burial to his nephew, Polyneices, for acts against the former king.
Antigone defies the King's edict against burial of Polyneices, her brother. This production asks if tragedy remains as inescapable and predictable as Sophocles has implied, says Jennifer Strange.
