Oedipus Tyrannus
 

The play is about revealing the potential horrors beneath the surface-beauty of life, as of art, illusion and reality.

It is also a meta-tragedy, a tragedy about tragedy.

The proportional relationships in tragedy, however, differ between the ancient and the modern writer. Whereas Shakespeare and Pirandello use the awareness of illusion to explore theatricality, Sophocles uses theatricality to explore the moral, religious and metaphysical questions, raised by the suffering of Oedipus.

15-26 Feb at 7.30 pm, except Sunday at 3 pm
