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

Once you discover this venue, you look forward to attending performances there. The theater is small, yes, but that's it's charm. And no matter where you sit, you feel you have THE best seat.
This performane was very pleasant but a bit tedious for us because of the enounciations and not being accustomed to the meter. Yet, it didn't detract from the overall presentation because it was very well done, had many laughs and made for a great evening. And the price is certainly a GREAT bargain!
