Antigonick adapts one of the earliest tragedies in theatre in Anne Carson's playful, bittersweet and profoundly poetic translation. When King Kreon forbids the burial of Antigone's brother, announcing a sentence of death on anybody who touches his body, her decision to defy his ruling unravels families and the ruling order. This adaptation breaks the play open, breaks down the fourth wall, and revels in its messiness and complications.
ANTIGONICK is presented by special arrangement with United Talent Agency.
