Theatre: Antigone

Greek tragedy can sometimes be a rather distant affair, but director Polly Findlay’s urgent interpretation of Sophocles’2500-year-old work (using a 1986 version by the late Don Taylor) takes place in a more or less modern hub of political activity and grips from start to finish.

Olivier at the National
SE1 9PX. Until July 21. £12-£32
 Tube | Waterloo | nationaltheatre.org


Theatre: Ragtime

A concept is all very well, as long as it serves the play, rather than vice versa. While 21st-century multicultural America is a contrasting backdrop to the early 20th-century aspirations of EL Doctorow’s 1975 novel’s characters, this revival – a tale of broken and fulfilled American dreams – of the ‘98 musical adap doesn’t always satisfy.

Open Air Theatre
Regent’s Park, NW1 4NR.
Until Sep 8. £22.50+ 
Tube | Baker Street | openairtheatre.org 


Exhibition: Invisible

This exhib, featuring the likes of Yoko Ono, Chris Burden and Andy Warhol, looks at art which explores the unseen and the hidden. So if that sounds like odd plinths with nothing atop them, then you’re on the right track (one display is exactly that). There’s also a ‘haunted’ black tunnel and Jeppe Hein’s Invisible Labrinth.

Hayyward Gallery
Southbank Centre, SE1 8XX.
June 12-Aug 5. £8
