Oedipus at Colonus

directed by Karen Kirkham

Artwork by Annie Poon 

After a lifetime of roaming the earth in blind exile, an aging Oedipus comes upon a grove where he is bestowed with godlike power. Prophecies of this event lead warring factions from the city that once banished Oedipus to compel his return. Oedipus refuses, determined in his final hours to rise above the throes of human strife. Sophocles’ final, monumental play about loss and resurrection hums to life in this rhythmically deft new translation by Irish poet Eamon Grennan and Rachel Kitzinger.
