Double Bill Tour – Antigone na h’Éireann & Women of the Mourning Fields (2019)

2019 Revival Tour

2019 marks our fifth anniversary and as such, we are very excited to announce a special Aulos tour in the Spring!

WOMEN OF THE MOURNING FIELDS

mourning fields square no text.jpg

 

Slandered by history. Forgotten as women.

Rome’s final curtain has fallen, yet three women still linger in the wings. Tainted by Emperor Nero’s legacy, his mother Agrippina fights against the injustice of history. Forced onto the stage with her resentful daughter-in-law and the woman who usurped her role, another unwelcome performance is imminent…but scripts can always be rewritten.

ANTIGONE NA H’ÉIREANN

antigone_poster_square_new.jpg

A fresh take on the story by multi award-winning writer James Beagon, inspired by Sophocles, Aeschlyus and other classical authors.

Driven by faith to resurrect the IRA, Annie battles to bring her family the honour they deserve. A hard-border Brexit has severed Ireland in two. In the shadow of her father and the memory of the Disappeared, faith, family and factions collide.
