Drawing upon themes of sectarianism, LGBT issues and the impact of Brexit on Ireland, Antigone na h’Éireann will be an Aulos Productions’ presentation at Buxton Fringe.

Written by playwright and ancient historian James Beagon, Antigone na h’Éireann takes inspiration not only from Sophocles but also other versions of myth including Statius’ Thebaid.

The cast comprises Jenny Quinn (Annie), Emer Conway (Izzy), Serena Doran (Erin), Charlie Angelo (Teodoir), Peter Morrison (Padraig), Thomas Mugglestone (Eamonn) and Les Fulton (Colm).

Beagon directs and Amy McMonagle is assistant director. Technical manager is Rob Younger and costume manager is Aimee Whyte. Jessica Kelly is music composer while fight choreographer is Rachel Bussom. Eleonore Dambre is set and publicity designer.

Antigone na h’Éireann plays Underground at the Arts Centre on Saturday 7 July at 7:30PM, Thursday 12 July at 9:15PM and Friday 13 July at 7:30PM.
