Wayne Jordan's Oedipus at the Abbey Theatre

Theatre: Oedipus, Audio Described and Captioned Performance at the Abbey

24 Oct 2015 (Past)

The Abbey Theatre

Wayne Jordan’s new version of Oedipus invites us to confront vital questions of who we are and how we live together.

The city of Thebes hides a secret crime. Punished by the Gods, the citizens seek protection. They turn to their King. He saved them before. Can he save them again?

Sophocles’ enduring tragedy is an elaborate meeting of political drama, murder mystery and psychological thriller.

Featuring an original score by Tom Lane and a cast of 19 actors, the Abbey Theatre is proud to present Oedipus as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.
