The plot of Antigone

Antigone is about the underdog who fights the system, with a strong, young woman as the protagonist.

Antigone, daughter of the doomed King Oedipus, defies the orders of the state’s ruler, Creon, by burying her brother Polynikis against his orders. Her act of love and rebellion triggers a sequence of dramatic events surrounding her and Creon’s relentless convictions.

Antigone’s courage, bravery and faith in love are extremely touching. She takes a stance, even though her own sister conformingly tells her: "You ought to realise we are only women, not meant in nature to fight against men."

The International Theatre in English

The classical political thriller by Sophocles remains relevant in our modern times. The International Theatre in English shows how the play challenges us to think about the position of the individual within a society, and about the empowerment of women, loyalty and love.

The production of 30 Dutch and international artists pays homage to all women who once dared to be a girl and stood up for what they believe in.
