Welcome to Thebes

Off the Ground Youth Theatre presents

"Welcome to Thebes"

By Moira Buffini


 “Welcome to Thebes” is a modern re-telling of the Greek play Antigone. Set in what could be the current situation in Libya, a country ravaged by the spoils of war is seeing its first democratically elected President inaugurated. They are bankrupt and still in shock and this fledgling Government needs the help of its wealthy neighbours to get back on track. With many familiar Greek characters and of course some interference from the Gods, we see the tension rising in this new land of hope and freedom!

The performances will be on Thur 22nd, Fri 23rd and Sat 24th March in Neston Civic Hall, beginning at 7.30pm.
