August 8th - August 10th
Using Don Taylor’s translation, originally commissioned by the BBC, Malvern Theatres Young Company presents Antigone, directed by Nic Lloyd.
Demonstrating the clash and interweaving of human passions and failings, their production of Sophocles’s deeply poetic tragedy promises to bring into focus the timeless conflict between the needs of the individual and those of the state.
Established in 2012, Malvern Theatres Young Company gives 16-24-year-olds the opportunity to perform in a professional environment. This will be the company’s ninth production and follows their success with The Crucible in 2017. Antigone will open in Malvern before transferring to the Edinburgh Fringe for six performances at theSpace on the Mile.
