    “But just remember this, brother, nobody laughs forever! There’ll come a time when they’ll stop laughing, and that will be the time when our Antigone hits them with her words.”

     

    John and Winston are two prisoners on Robben Island, bound by ideology, proximity, shackles and a deep affection. As they rehearse for a performance of Sophocles’ Antigone at the prison concert, John learns that his release is imminent; Winston is a lifer. This classic South African play balances hope and despair as it identifies with Antigone’s struggle of right and wrong, the law of State versus the law of the heart.  It exposes the depths of cruelty and inhumanity while affirming the dignity and courage of the human spirit.  

     

    The Island is remembered as one of the few plays that helped to change the world. Its tour of America was crucial in bringing the Americans to impose sanctions on South Africa – a move which helped topple apartheid.
