Premiere: Guildhall, Derry

High Time Synopsis:

A verse comedy in two acts which relocates Molière’s ‘The School for Husbands’ to a Georgian house in Ireland during the 1980s.

The Riot Act Synopsis:

After the death of their father, Oedipus, Eteocles and Polyneices were to rule thebes in alternate years, but Eteocles would not give up his throne at the end of his year of rule. This led to the expedition of the Seven Against Thebes, in which seven heroes fought bitterly to retain the throne for Polyneices. In a duel between Eteocles and Polyneices to decide the issue, the brothers killed each other. Their uncle, Creon, became King of Thebes.

Creon orders that Eteocles be buried according to the proper rites and customs, and he forbids the burial of Polyneices. It is the law of the gods that Antigone must bury her brother’s body. Ismene, Antigone’s sister, though she recognises the imperative force of divine law, opposes Antigone’s decision.

(Tom Paulin, from the program)
