Oedipus Staged Reading
May 27th @ 7:30 p.m.
The Museum of Performance + Design and John Travis present a staged reading of Sophocles’ classic Greek tragedy Oedipus, directed by Jamie Lyons. The production uses the acclaimed translation and adaptation of Oedipus the King (Oedipus Rex) by British writer Anthony Burgess of Clockwork Orange fame.
Oedipus is the iconic anti-hero who tries to change his tragic fate, but ends up fulfilling his dreaded destiny to kill his father and marry his mother, despite efforts to prevent his downfall.
