HND Drama students will be presenting Liz Lochheads Greek tragedy “Thebans” at the Brian Cox studio Theatre, 105 Brunswick Street, Glasgow, G1 1TF. In THEBANS Liz Lochhead , working from the classic dramas of Sophocles, Euripides and Aeschylus, re-tells in a single play the ancient stories of the kingdom of Thebes: of Oedipus the King, of Jokastahis mother/wife, and their children, the warring brothers Polyneikes and Eteokles and the sisters Ismene and Antigone who dies rather than obey Oedipus`s successor King Kreon, her uncle, and leave her brothers corpse unburied…”
This is a play where no character escapes their fate, a fate decreed by the Gods or self inflicted by human frailty.
This production will be an integrated project utilising the skills and creativity of other Curriculum Teams namely: Model Making, Graphic Design and interior Design. More info and pictures will be available when the production is up and running during the second semester.
