Oedipus at Colonus
 

Sophocles' Oedipus at Colonus
A Modern Translation by Don Taylor
Directed by George Eugeniou.

 

Following Sophocles’ Oedipus the King and Oedipus Tyrannos, in this third and final play of the series we encounter Oedipus as an old, blind and penniless man, who, cared for by his daughter Antigone only, arrives at an olive grove outside Colonus after restlessly travelling the country.

In this holy place, he has to face the false pretence of Creon and his son Polynices, who try to persuade him into coming back to Thebes for their own selfish reasons. He is forced to tell his tantalizing story all over again until finally, with the help of King Theseus, he is able to at last make his peace with this world.

 

A unique chance to experience the gripping tragedy in a mixture of English, modern Greek and its original ancient Greek language!

There will be subtitles for the Greek parts of the play.
