Jean Anouilh's version of this timeless story is one of the greatest French plays of the 20th Century - a brilliantly theatrical treatment of Antigone's passionate and fatal determination to give a proper burial to her fallen brother in defiance of state authority.

Written in Nazi-occupied France in 1944, the play's rich web of political, moral and psychological themes could hardly be more pertinent today.
