POST-OEDIPUS is a radical re-working of Euripides’ play The Phoenician Women, chronicling the events of Oedipus’ family after the fall of Oedipus. It uses the structure of royal ceremonies to unravel the mental state of a family after disaster. The family has been beset with war, pestilence, poverty, incest, riddles, hateful prophesies and betrayal. The play sheds light on the chaos of the characters’ minds as it careens through time periods, acting styles, musical interjections, intensely emotional reveries and visual images.
