Antigone Alone - Brighton Fringe 2018

Sweet Dukebox - The Dukebox

Creon, King of Thebes, has decreed that Polynices' body must lie, unburied, where he fell in battle. The penalty for disobeying is death. His niece has defied the law and buried her brother's body. What made her do it? Will Creon rescind his decree? This gripping new solo play presents Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, as a defiant upholder of morality over political expediency, and of human rights over the demands of the state. Antigone is played by Joanna Lucas. Playwright Michael McEvoy's solo shows on Van Gogh, Orwell, Machiavelli, Dickens, and Shakespeare have been seen around the world.
