    The Greek tragedy is retold in an incredible new version by Barber Shop Chronicles playwright Inua Ellams.

    A thrilling retelling of the Greek myth

    An incredible, blistering new version of Greek tragedy Antigone opens at Regent’s Park, written by Barber Shop Chronicles playwright Inua Ellams. 

    Set in a war-torn and hostile country, Antigone is the story of a woman who defies her king to honour her family. In retribution, King Creon retaliates and risks the wrath of the gods. 

    This classic tale of warring families, tragedy and the hands of fate is given a thrilling update by Olivier Award winner Ellams. His unique style of poetry and verse-led theatre previously  earned him acclaim with The Half-God of Rainfall and Barber Shop Chronicles

    Antigone at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is directed by Max Webster, whose hugely popular production of Life of Pi transferred from Sheffield to the West End in 2021.
