Oedipus Rex

Director Adena Jacobs

  • Venue Downstairs Theatre
  • Dates 21 Aug – 21 Sep 2014

    How does a human being go on living after the unimaginable?

    A plague has stricken the city, and King Oedipus believes he is the cause. He lives out the remainder of his days as a blind man, shamed and in exile.

    In the intimacy of the Downstairs Theatre, Adena JacobsOedipus Rex is a lament and a powerful expression of tragedy for a modern audience – an invitation to bear witness to a man, who was once a king, now reconstructing the pieces.

    This visually bold, immersive theatrical event features the extraordinary Peter Carroll as Oedipus.
