Draft letter of translation by Lili Sigalas to Desmond Connor, Director of the Union Theatre, Melbourne University, it is dated 14 October 1950. Lili was completing the translation on behalf of Nicos Dimitracopoulos, Director of the Athens National Theatre. The letter is in relation to a proposed performance of Antigone.

In 1951 Nicos Dimitracopoulos directed a production of Sophocles' 'Antigone' in modern Greek at the Union Theatre at Melbourne University. A theatrical milestone, it was probably the first production of Greek tragedy in Greek in Victoria. Lili Sigalas had a minor part in the play, and was instrumental in organising the logistics of the production and was an active interpreter.

Lili Sigalas migrated to Australia in 1922 to marry Letho Sigalas. She and Letho moved in a very sociable set, composed of her own young Greek cousins. Lili also travelled abroad frequently, and was active in the Melbourne Greek community.
