The sets were nice but everything else about the show was terrible. It was really boring. I couldn't wait for it to be over.

A very imaginative and original production. Excellent acting. While the drama itself basically followed the original script, the integration with the Freudian interpratation made the drama more interesting and the presentation fascinating. ...continued

“…Altogether riveting…" and “Highly Recommended.” —Chicago Sun-Times 

Description

We all know the story—or so we think—of a young man who unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Sophocles’ monumental treatment of this theme has been a staple of world theater for more than 2,000 years. In this bold and provocative re-telling of the myth, Goodman Artistic Associate and Tony Award- winning director and adaptor Frank Galati reimagines Sophocles’ tragedy, fusing it with the words and ideas of Sigmund Freud-the man whose revolutionary theories crossed the boundaries of science by using the art of myth, metaphor and dream to bring meaning to the ultimate human drama.
