Event Description

Ellen McLaughlin's Oedipus (adapted from the Sophocles original) depicts a city in inexplicable crisis as Thebes is seized by plague, war, and famine. Desperate to save his people, Oedipus sends a messenger to the Oracle at Delphi. He discovers that their salvation rests solely on finding the murderer of the former kind, Laius, who was brutally slain by a stranger at the crossroads years ago. As Oedipus searches for the truth and begins to unravel the mystery of the stranger's identity, he unknowingly set in motion the wheels of his own destruction.
