“While our eyes wait to see the final destined day, we must call no mortal happy until he has crossed life’s border free from pain.”

A plague is destroying Thebes. Oedipus the King, renowned for his intellect and benevolence, vows to locate the source of corruption. As he traces the threads of pollution, he finds himself unknowingly entangled in an incriminating web and he must confront the fact that the truth lies a little too close to home.

Sophocles’ tragedy, Oedipus Tyrannus, explores issues of identity, limits of human knowledge and the fickleness of fortune. This new adaptation seeks to blend traditional Greek elements with contemporary styles in a liminal and seemingly timeless space.

This production is suitable for ages 12 and over.
