Using Don Taylor's BBC-commissioned translation, Malvern Theatres Young Company presents Antigone, directed by Nic Lloyd. Demonstrating the clash and interweaving of human passions and failings, their production of Sophocles' deeply poetic tragedy promises to bring universal themes and cultural archetypes to Fringe audiences. Established in 2012, Malvern Theatres Young Company gives aspiring 16-24-year-olds the opportunity to perform in a professional environment. Antigone will be the company's ninth production, bringing into focus the timeless conflict between the needs of the individual and that of the state.'Somewhere in the world, everyday, the real-life drama of Antigone is being enacted' (Don Taylor).
