Oedipus and Antigone

About the Play

Created By: Team IDEA

Translated By: Christina Katsaras

Directed By: Dr. Michael Mauldin

Details: See the North American and English language debut of Tree of OedipusDeveloped by the Idea Theatre in Athens, Greece, the play follows the lineage of Oedipus, from Cadmus, the first man and founder of Thebes, through the story of Oedipus' fall and redemption, to the deadly civil war between his sons, and the final battle between Creon and Antigone. Compiled from several ancient Greek tragedies, this sweeping story is told by an ensemble of actors through classical acting, song, dance, vaudeville, clowning, acrobatics, and combat which combine into an exciting theatrical experience. The English translation is by current CSU Theatre major Christina Katsaras, and is directed by Dr. Michael Mauldin.
