Antigone and Oedipus in the Age of Terror

This is advertising, pure and simple:

Pitchy Breath Theatre in partnership
With The Open University presents:

Antigone and Oedipus in the Age of Terror

Hawth Theatre, Hawth Avenue, Crawley West Sussex RH10 6YZ

2nd to 4th April 2009
First performed in the rubble of a bombed out theatre during the Bosnian civil war this version of the Oedipus and Antigone tragedy is a celebration of drama, music, and humanity in a time of war, economic collapse, and conflict.

There is darkness on the edge of town moving slowly and inevitably to destroy our way of life. But who is to blame, those in power or those who suffer at the hands of tyranny? And why is it always the next generation who pay the price. Is redemption possible?

All will be revealed in this festival of theatre magic from Pitchy Breath Theatre Company in partnership with The Open University.

The production is, of course, open to all and might be of particular value to students studying on the Open University’s exciting new course ARTS: PAST AND PRESENT (AA100)

Promenade Optional at some points.

Running time approx 2½ hours including two 20 minute intervals. Performances at 7.30 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Also at 2.30 on Saturday.
