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.
