Oedipus Rex

When: Sundays, 3 p.m., Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Mon., March 27, 7 p.m. Continues through April 8 2017

Plague has struck the city of Thebes. Good King Oedipus sends for a prophet who determines that an unsolved murder is the cause of the gods’ displeasure— and Oedipus is the killer. What follows is an unsettling investigation of the past, which begins at a three-way crossroad and ends in a moment of horrifying self-discovery. It’s the age-old tale of the dangers of hubris, told by one of history’s original playwrights, and its theme continues to resonate with audiences today: you cannot change your fate. Appropriate for all ages. Presented by PICT Classic Theater.
