World premiere by Stef Smith

Two women's faces next to each other

We are sorry to announce that all performances of Antigone have been cancelled.

A contemporary retelling of the story of Antigone, her siblings and her city, specially commissioned for Guildhall School.

This epic and lyrical reimagining of the classic Greek tragedy mixes ancient legend with modern perspective, resulting in a powerful exploration of generational damage, sisterly devotion and how we find hope in the most desperate of places.

Written by Olivier Award winner Stef Smith, Antigone is Guildhall’s first production directed by the School’s multi-award winning new Vice-Principal & Director of Drama, Orla O’Loughlin.

This play contains themes which some people may find upsetting. Please contact Barbican Box Office if you would like more information.

This production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books

Promoted by Guildhall School of Music & Drama


Following Guildhall School’s move to suspend all face-to-face teaching from Wednesday 18 March in response to COVID-19, all performances of Antigone have unfortunately been cancelled. 

The Barbican Box Office will arrange automatic refunds for ticket holders in due course.
