AntigoneX

The queerest tragedy you’ll ever see.

Experience the highly anticipated world premiere of AntigoneX washing ashore this Midsumma Festival. Full of mayhem and spectacle, this queered up Greek tragedy offers offers everything from beach balls to budgy smugglers, and narration from a washed up Cabaret singer replicating Taylor Mac after a hurricane. This contemporary take on an old classic offers the perfect balance of queer culture and fun in the (fake) sun.

Produced by Zeb Fontaine Theatre
Written by Zachary Dunbar
Co-Directed by Zachary Dunbar and Katy Maudlin

Meet our Artists – Raimondo Cortese

We sat down with Raimondo Cortese ahead of the Masterclass Series  to talk all things writing: How does writing for theatre differ from other platforms?
