Join AC coach Leigh Quinn and director Lily McLeish on an exciting 10 week exploration of Antigone by Sophocles culminating in a live zoom performance!


For actors that want to challenge themselves and gain more confidence and knowledge in the treasure trove for actors that is Greek tragedy. 


Please note that this will not be a boring history lesson!


We will create a safe space for actors to explore and play. Guiding you through the rehearsal process from the first read through where we begin to unlock the text and find character clues to embracing the heightened language and specific storytelling in focussed rehearsal calls of these epic scenes. Ending with a live zoom sharing in our final session where we will bring our story to life for an invited internal audience. Ahhh theatre…we miss you!
