In a world ripped apart by war where fear, pain and oppression are a way of life there is one woman
who will stand up for what she believes in. One woman who will fight for what is right.
One woman who will risk her own life in order to see her brother laid to rest.
Antigone, Sophocles’ timeless drama, in a 20th century version by Bertolt Brecht, deals with the individual’s struggle
against the authoritarian state, civil disobedience, and having the moral courage to die for one’s convictions.

Antigone is directed by Mary Moynihan who lectures in drama and theatre studies for
the Bachelor of Arts in Drama (Performance) at DIT. Mary is a professional theatre director, writer and facilitator.
She directs and writes for Smashing Times Theatre Company and is an associate artist and theatre director with Focus Theatre.
