This classic Greek tragedy follows Oedipus' journey to discover the source of the plague affecting Thebes, the killer of the old king Laius, and the reality of his own identity. As he moves closer to the truth, we see and hear Oedipus in action, his virtues and vices on display, and through this man, hero, savior, master, and tyrant, we see how we, too, relate to others and to the divine.

Running time: 90 minutes with no intermission.
