Oedipus Tyrannus

Thebes is cursed with a devastating plague, and the only cure is to sacrifice the murderer of the old king. Oedipus, the new king revered for his cleverness, takes it upon himself to seek out the murderer, but the further he progresses in his investigation, the closer he comes to uncovering the horrors of his own past. Sophocles’ play, perhaps the best-known of the Greek tragedies, still strikes a chord with audiences today, delving into the timeless conflict of a human being struggling against destiny.
