Off The Cuff Community Theatre Group presents The Burial at Thebes A translation of Antigone, by Seamus Heaney Saturday 8th October 2016 8pm

A Northern Ireland city, post the troubles...
Antigone, originally written by Sophocles almost 2,500 years ago is as relevant today as it was then.

Antigone and Ismene are the last of their family. Both their brothers, Eteocles and Polyneices,have just been killed in a battle.

Their uncle Creon has taken control of the city and outlaws the burial of Polyneices. Antigone's appalling dilemma is whether to obey Creon and offend the gods, or follow her heart and plunge her accursed family into a fresh cycle of violence by burying her brother.

Off The Cuff Community Theatre Group is a cross community and multi -cultural group who are working to improve the quality of the lives of their community through the medium of drama.


Tickets: £8 (includes £1 development donation)
