Join us for a staging of Peter Arnott's translation of Oedipus at Colonus - the middle play in Sophocles’ Theban Trilogy. Sophocles returns to his most famous character, Oedipus, transforming him from an exiled immigrant to a suppliant who bestows gifts on legendary King Theseus and Athens. Arnott's line-by-line translation, complete with all the chorus odes, gives the fullest emersion to this masterpiece about redemption, immigration, truth, murder, and death. Written late in Sophocles’ life, Oedipus at Colonus benefits from a long life of accumulated wisdom, and perhaps explains why it is often considered to be the crowning achievement of Greek drama.
