Antigone

Antigone

★★★☆☆ Ancient grudge:

Antigone presented by Amplify Time and New Celts at TheSpace on the Mile, attempts to bring the concerns of Ancient Greece to the contemporary arena. If unresolved tensions in the script mean it is not always successful, this production has considerable vitality and nerve.

Nitro

Nitro

★★★☆☆  Farcically tense:

Nitro by Glass Knuckles and New Celts at theSpace on the Mile may never live up to the explosive promise of its title, but has an energy and vigour that covers its faults effectively.
