Irish Nobel laureate Semus Heaney's dazzling adaptation of Antigone brings life and breath to Sophocles. First written as a response to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. It stands today as a timely reminder of the conflict between the defense of state security and the protection of basic human rights. Directed by Charlotte Moore.
