About the piece

When uproar from the residents of Thebes greets Oedipus, the king, he pursues the task of mending the long plagued city.

Having received news from his aid Creon, Oedipus learns that he must unearth the identity of the killer of the former King Laius.

On his journey for answers, however, Oedipus uncovers some sickening and inconceivable truths he did not expect to find...

This experiemtnal revival explores the use of an unconventional space as a means to re-tell this ancient story through brand new music, physical theatre and a renewed version of Sophochles' original script.
