Concurrent with his appearance in Coco at Sadler's Wells this summer, Edward is playing the part of the blind seer Tiresias in a new production of Sophocles' Antigone at Southwark Playhouse. The production is by Primavera and features a translation by Timberlake Wertenbaker.
Antigone is a play that speaks powerfully to each generation and which has previously been adapted by Cocteau, Anouilh, Brecht and Seamus Heaney, amongst others, and performed on one occasion by Nelson Mandela and his fellow inmates on Robben Island.
The production at Southwark runs until 18 June.
Monday to Saturday, 7.45pm
Saturday matinee, 3.15pm.
