Chatterbox Audio Theater Releases OEDIPUS THE KING, ACT I
Chatterbox Audio Theater, Memphis's only web-based theater company, is proud to announce the release of its latest production, OEDIPUS THE KING, ACT I. This intense, audio-only version of the quintessential Greek tragedy features a wide variety of Memphis talent. Act I (of three) runs approximately 37 minutes and is now available for free streaming and download through iTunes and www.chatterboxtheater.org.Sophocles' classic play OEDIPUS THE KING depicts the fall of Oedipus, King of Thebes. An oracle reveals to Oedipus that the gods are angry over a long-ago act of violence: the murder of the former king, Laius. As Oedipus investigates the circumstances surrounding Laius' death, he begins to uncover evidence incriminating himself in the crime. The dire prophecies and dreadful revelations that follow remain shocking and moving more than 2,400 years after the play was written.
