Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).


Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.


However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.


The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).


Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Synopsis


The war is over. 


The dead have been buried.


The traitors have been punished.


People feel more alive than they have in a long time.


They are ready to start again.


But Antigone is not.


She will not move on, and she will not forget.


She will drag everyone back if she has to.


Anything to get justice for her brother.


Lulu Raczka's searing adaptation hands the reins of Sophocles' classic text to the young people at the heart of the play creating something messy, irreverent and vital.
