While his city suffers from plague and ruin, Oedipus stands firm, a proud king who seems to have nothing to fear. Oedipus must solve the mystery of who murdered the previous king to save his city, and he is determined that no one will stand in his way. But in seeking the truth, his own worst nightmares come to light.
The CLC production is using a modern translation by Stephen Berg and Diskin Clay, which was hailed by The New York Times Book Review as "daring and experimental."
