Raise the Stakes Theatre presents
Directed by Anton Golikov
The ancient Greek tragedy of Antigone is the tragedy of humanity. A cycle of violence continues to feed itself through the edicts issued by Creon, the absolute power of the state. A woman rises to question the “law of man” and is sentenced to death. There is no common ground except that to which we will all one day return. Listen to the dead, their voice is clearest:
Seek reconciliation, else your destruction is assured.

Raise The Stakes Theatre:
Founded in 2012, is Montreal’s premiere classical theatre ensemble. We are breaking down the fourth wall and bringing back the visceral connection with our audience – up close and personal, with live soundtrack, with the traditional approaches to language learned under Sir Peter Hall founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company, also combining our techniques of moment-to-moment spontaneity and improvisation. Other company training and experience include the RADA, LAMDA, Kingston University London, Concordia, John Abbott and the Dawson Professional Theatre Program.
