You’d be forgiven for saying ‘it’s all Greek to me’, but only just.
The Farringdon Society of Arts players’ performance of Burial at Thebes, Seamus Heaney’s translation of Sophocles’ Antigone, is filled with modern-day relevance - do you hold duty to the state or your conscience (something the burghers of London town should have spent a bit more time considering, perhaps).
It’s an exciting time for the (the village that’s just past Crealy), the play is a celebration of the ties between Jack Yeats (brother of WB and top Irish painter) and Devon, and marks the starting point of a cultural rollercoaster for members of the Yeats Society as they trip through the Devon lanes to uncover some of the not-so-hidden cultural treasure.
The play runs from Tuesday, May 20 to Saturday May 24, at Farringdon. To book your ticket ring or e-mail .
