Written by Sophocles

Directed by Dan Bacalzo

February 12, 13, 19 & 20 at 7:30p
February 14, 20* & 21 at 2:00p


The ruler of a city ravaged by plague must solve the murder of his predecessor, and in doing so solve the riddles of his own hidden past. This Ancient Greek tragedy – written by Sophocles in the 5th Century B.C.E. – examines timeless and timely issues of leadership, responsibility, and how those in power respond to a crisis. As Oedipus delves further and further into the mystery, he is forced to choose between saving his city and saving himself.
