ANTIGONE, a production of Strong Coffee Stage is a new and original two-actor performance of the classic Greek tragedy. Inspired by the writings of Sophocles, Jean Anouilh, Bertolt Brecht, Anne Carson, Jocelyn Clarke, Seamus Heaney and Charles Mee, the story of the headstrong young daughter of Oedipus comes to life amidst an imaginative and startlingly playful landscape.
