GREEK mythology but in a version adapted by Bertol Brecht, will be hitting the stage in Stevenage soon.

Antigone will be performed from March 1-4 at the Lytton Theatre.

The Greek legend sees Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, King of Thebes, as the heroine of one of Sophocles' greatest dramas.

The plot revolves around Antigone's devotion to her brother and her defiance of the new King, Creon, as she follows a desire to obey a higher order of devotion.

In Brecht's version, a prologue is set in 1945 Berlin and shows two sisters whose brother has deserted from the German army and is found hanged. Should they risk being seen by the SS cutting his body down?

A challenging play by the Lytton Youth Group.
