'Who here can tell what law we owe the dead?'

Antigone, daughter of Oedipus, is a child of war. Thousands of years ago she asked a question: What do we do with the body of the enemy when this enemy is our brother?

Damien Ryan's new adaptation of Sophocles' classic takes the conflicts of ancient Thebes and wrenches them passionately into the present. This story of war and its aftermath is a powerful yet vulnerable allegory about one of history's most famous families. Sport for Jove's production of Antigone won seven Sydney Theatre Awards in 2016.

'It stays with me, one thing... my panache!'

Cyrano de Bergerac is convinced that his outrageously sized nose will forever stop him from being loved by Roxane, his intellectual and beautiful friend. But Roxane is in love-with Christian, a handsome yet inarticulate soldier in Cyrano's regiment. Together, Christian and Cyrano make a flawless human.

The epic plot of Edmond Rostand's original 1890s tragicomic French masterpiece spans a whole war, from Parisian bakeries to the bloody battlefront. This new adaptation by Damien Ryan brings the action forward to WWI, where Cyrano is a war poet like no other. Sport for Jove's production of Cyrano de Bergerac won three Sydney Theatre Awards in 2013.
