Antigone | Company B - Belvoir St Theatre

... In this production Heaney and Kohn have joined with a magnificent ensemble of actors to render a play that in every way delivers on the aspirations of Sophocles’ original work. ...

... Deborah Mailman plays Antigone with a genteel but uncompromising reserve matched to a contained and often bewildered Creon played by Boris Radmilovich, his foreign accent underlining the fact that here was an interloper ill at ease among those with more local savvy.  Kate Fitchett as the sister Ismene expresses the confusion of one uncomprehending of a refusal to compromise. Gillian Jones, playing Tireseus and Euridice gives an outstanding portrayal of the blind seer. Hazem Shammas, portrayed Haemon with wonderful passion and Pacharo Mzembe (Pach) presented a memorable debut performance as the guard with James Saunders as the luckless messenger. It was left to Paul Blackwell as chorus, merging the elder neighbour in this production, to comment on the argument as it is developed. It is understood that he filled the role at a week’s notice. His accomplished treatment in the part deserves great credit conveying a reluctance to interfere with a palpable horror of the implacability of the antagonists. It was a stylish interpretation. ...
