Antigone is on trial. She has defied King Creon’s edict and secretly offered funeral rites to her dead brother Polynices. As she awaits her fate she relives her family’s recent history, slowly unravelling the violent and incestuous cycle of the House of Cadmus. Telling the mythical story of Oedipus from the perspective of his courageous daughter Antigone, the King’s Greek Play 2022 will examine how our history can shape our actions and beliefs, as well as reflecting upon the unexpected ways in which the present moment might shape the lives of future generations.

Created by current students, The Plague at Thebes offers a contemporary response to Sophocles’ plays. This continues KCL’s recent history of pushing the boundaries and conventions of the Greek Play to explore how contemporary performance of Greek drama can help us engage with our contemporary moment.

You will be asked to select a performance at checkout. To purchase multiple tickets you will need to add them to your basket individually.
