Aequitas presents Antigone in a new 90-minute translation. Set in Durham in Thatcher’s 80’s, during the miner’s strike, Antigone wishes to bury her brother Polyneices, a striking miner who has been killed by his twin Eteocles -a scab. However, the funeral has been made illegal by THE new police chief, Creon, their aunt who has taken control of the city. Creon sentences her niece to death and chaos ensues. Does power truly corrupt is and when it does, what is the fallout? Aequitas highlights this belief and transports it to a more modern tim to examine the social constructs throughout the ages.
