South Wicklow Drama Festival

Kilrush Drama Group 2007 Production


"Antigone" is based Sophocles Greek tragedy of the same name. This version written by the great French writer Jean Anouilh in 1944 is a more modern telling of the Greek classic.

The young, slender, 17 year old Antigone is representative of the modern day freedom fighter as she resolutely deifies a solemn edict declared by her uncle King Creon, to the point of being put to death.

"Antigone" is an outstanding example of Anouilh's unerring technical skill. It is a permanent landmark in 20th century French theatre and is regularly performed and studied around the world.
