UCL Classical Play 2019: Oedipus Rex

6 February - 8 February

£8 – £10

New of UCL’s 2019 Classical Play…

The UCL Greek and Latin Department and the Bloomsbury Theatre present the Classical Play for 2019: Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex.

Gripped by plague, the citizens of Thebes petition their king, Oedipus, to purify a divine pollution and appease the gods. Yet as he works to uncover the mysteries of a forgotten crime, the horrifying truth of his own sordid past is brought out into the light for all to see, and a terrible price is paid. Widely praised as having one of the greatest tragic plots ever written, this production will recast Sophocles’ ancient masterpiece in a more familiar context, featuring an original score and translation. Modern audiences will be confronted with the play’s timeless question: what is the cost of truth?

Book for the lecture taking place before the show on 6th, 7th & 8th February, 6-7pm Lecture

Book for the workshop with renowned director David Stuttard, taking place on 8th February at 11am-1.30pm Workshop
