International Live Broadcast Of ASL Integrated OEDIPUS THE KING To Play Final Three Performances

Play Your* Part presents Oedipus the King by Sophocles.

The city of Thebes is faced with a flesh-eating plague that is killing its people. The gods claim the only way to save the city is to uncover the man who murdered their former king and kill or exile him. Oedipus, famous for having saved Thebes by solving the riddle of the Sphinx, learns from a blind prophet that he himself is the very murderer he seeks, and that he is destined for a fate worse than death. Oedipus reject the prophet's visions as fake, but relentless and maniacal in his pursuit of the truth, he roots out those who know the origins of his birth. What is revealed leads to even more ghastly acts of free-will in the face of inescapable doom.

This Live-Streamed International Broadcast features thirteen actors from across the nation bringing us this cautionary tale LIVE from the safety of their own homes, while a tech savvy team streams their feeds out in real time. All performances are ASL Interpreted and feature Open Captioning.
