Antigone mourns her brother, left to rot in the field by her callous uncle, the tyrant King. She needs to honour her brother, to bury him. But whose law is greater – her god’s or her king’s? Antigone picks the fight anyway, and a personal tragedy of ancient Greek proportions follows.

Sophocles’ deadly masterpiece tears the family and the state apart in this urgent political drama.

This event will also be live streamed here.

Triple C are a Manchester-based disabled-led organisation that supports access and representation for deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people across the arts and screen sectors. The collaboration will ensure Antigone is accessible to creatives and actors as well as to the audience, including captioning at each performance.

This event is currently on sale with socially distanced seating in line with current government guidelines.
