Oedipus Rex XX/XY
by Sophocles translated by Robert Fagles
directed by Mark Greenfield
What happens when Oedipus is a woman and Jocasta is a man? Searching beyond the Freudian notions of “boy loves mom,” Faux-Real re-examines Oedipus with modern eyes and ancient techniques, uncovering the fearful truths and grotesque ironies that Sophocles presented audiences 2000 years prior to the birth of psychology.
