Antigone na h'Éireann

from Aulos Productions

Driven by faith to resurrect the IRA, Annie battles to bring her family the honour they deserve. A new Northern Irish adaptation of the classic myth by multi award-winning writer James Beagon.

In the not too distant future, a hard-border Brexit has severed Ireland in two once and for all. Annie and her siblings will not let this stand. An unshakeable shadow lingers over their journey as faith, family and factions collide: the shadow of their father and the memory of the Disappeared.

A fresh take on the story, inspired by Sophocles and other sources.
