We are delighted to announce that there will be 3 VIP performances of our play ‘Antigone’ by Sophocles on the 9rd, 10th and 11th of March. It’s called VIP because a discussion, or exchange of ideas, will take place after the play and you will also be given the opportunity to meet the director and cast. What is more, you may enjoy these VIP performances at a discounted price of $35 (from $45). You will be able to do so using the promo code TRGREECE when purchasing your tickets, either by visiting https://www.telecharge.com/Off-Broadway/Antigone/Overview…, or calling 212-947-8844.

One of the finest works of ancient Greek drama, Antigone brings the conflict between moral and state law to its boiling point.
Creon has taken the thrown of Thebes. He has ruled that Polyneices, who fought and lost the battle of Seven Against Thebes, will not be given proper burial rights. As a loyal sister in mourning, Antigone breaks against Creon to fight for her brother’s honor as moral laws state it is his right. The results rattle the entire country leaving Creon to choose between the law of the land and the law of his conscience. Originally performed around 442 BCE at the Great Dionysia festival, Antigone is written by Sophocles, one of only three ancient Greek tragedians whose works have survived to this day. It is the third in a series of plays called the Theban plays, and is based on the Battle of Salamis and exile of Themistocles.
