The Stevenage Lytton Youth Theatre

Bertolt Brecht's version of Sophocles'

March 1st - March 4th 2006

The Lytton Theatre Stevenage

Director Dave Slade.

The Stevenage Lytton Players Spring 2006 Youth Production was Bertolt Brecht's version of Sophocle's  Antigone was performed at the Lytton Theatre by the Thursday Group.

After Grimm Tales I asked the Thursday Group what sort of show they would like to do next. They said something challenging. I had just seen a production of Jean Anouilh’s version of Antigone, I was so impressed I went out and bought the book. I then noticed there were lots of other versions of this Greek tale. It was during this time I stumbled upon Bertolt Brecht’s version and thought – “they want challenging, this will be very challenging”. Not only are we doing a Greek myth, we’re doing Brecht’s unique version of it.

This is different from anything the Lytton Players have ever done before. So, if you are interested in a unique, different, strange, invigorating piece of theatre come along to the group's production of Brecht’s Antigone!
