It may be from 429 B.C., but Oedipus Rex is just as relevant today as it was way back then. This modern translation reimagines the world of Oedipus, the newly crowned king of Thebes, who is charged with finding the murderer of his predecessor, King Laius. As Oedipus investigates the past in Sophocles' classic tragedy he discovers dark secrets and learns that no man can control his fate (spoiler alert: his fate involves murdering his father and marrying his mother). Oedipus Rex has been called the perfect Greek tragedy by none other than philosopher Aristotle. However, this contemporary spin promises to be a little different than your great-great-great-grandfather's Oedipus. Learn More

It was a low budget production but the crew were so inventive using
techno skills to provide atmosphere. The dancer in the production was
first rate. The acting was good. I'm Welsh and saw things that went on
in my family not knowing they were Welsh.
