It’s the 2504th performance of Oedipus Rex and Chorus 6 wants to call it quits. But the tragic hero isn’t quite ready to let go. As the plot begins to unravel at the seams, the characters begin to question the purpose of tragedy itself and engage in a series of heated struggles to separate fact from fiction. Part of Terrible Edgar’s The Complex series, this penetrating new drama is a hard-hitting reinterpretation of Sophocles’ definitive Greek tragedy. ‘Indisputably excellent’ (Varsity, Cambridge). ‘Magnificent’, ‘intelligent’, ‘metatheatre writ large’ (Tab, Cambridge). If you thought you knew Oedipus, think again.
