PALE SISTER: Lisa Dwan on reinventing ‘Antigone’

 

A new Antigone?

That’s what Bloodlands actress, Lisa Dwan wanted to achieve with ‘Pale Sister’. With theatres closed, Lisa had to do things a little differently and brought this new adaption to the BBC (where you can currently view the play!)

In this one woman play as part of BBC’s Light Up season, Lisa reinvents Sophocles’ Greek tragedy with the help of  Colm Tóibín. Lisa sat down with us to tell us a little bit more about the new version!
