by Jean Anouilh – PACT, Sydney 2015

“It’s a pleasure to see a neglected classic tested before an audience.”                 Sydney  Morning Herald            

“One of the most powerful interpretations of Sophocles’ tragedy.”                     Alternative Media               

“Incredible that such a handful of very accomplished actors can have such a powerful impact.” South Sydney Herald


“What kind of happiness do you foresee for me? Tell me: Who will I have to lie to? Who do you want me to leave dying, while I turn my eyes away?” 

Antigone says “No” to everything and everyone. To King Creon, who has banned the burial of her brother. To her sister Ismene, who thinks she is a mere little girl not up to the task. And to life itself, if it involves compromise and betrayal.

In this acclaimed contemporary version of Sophocle’s classic tragedy, Jean Anouilh questions our ethics and notions of power and individual liberties.

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE – Written by Gary Roost – Australian Tour 2015

“It was Francis.”  Malgosia Skawinski, close friend of Bacon    

“Roost is a superb character actor, one of the most inspired at the Fringe.”         Fringe Review, Edinburgh Fringe

“An impressive script and committed performance.” The Brag, Sydney      

“What an amazing theatre piece.”                                                                                 Greer, Dir. of Brightspace Gallery, Melbourne


An enigma, a maverick, a controversial and charismatic Force of Nature.    

Starring Garry Roost (East Enders, Black Books), in an acclaimed solo performance that has attracted rave reviews in the UK, we follow the struggle of  young artist Bacon who eventually finds that success and tragedy go hand-in-hand when you are determined to live life to the full. Caught wearing his mother’s stockings. Banished from the family home. Sent to Berlin with his father’s henchman. Transfixed by Picasso. On to the Colony Club. Champagne. Triptych. A tragic love life.

Written and performed by Garry Roost                                                                   Original Production directed by Paul Garnault                                                     Dramaturgy by Paul Garnault and Matthew Williams                                           Additional material by Matthew Williams and Eddie Gray                                             Pope Head image created by Graeme Dalton
