Synopsis: "Oedipus the King" grew out of ancient Greek myths dating back over three thousand years. For centuries the story of the King who unwittingly kills his father and marries his mother, like those of the Greek tragedies, was passed down from generation to generation as oral history, spoken or sung. Then, around 750 B.C, the Greek discovered writing, and began to record their myths. Sophocles wrote his play around 428 B.C. This production is a new translation from The Original Greek by Nicholas Rudall.
