OEDIPUS EL REY

By

Luis Alfaro

Bilingual Production

Directed by

Tanaquil Márquez

TEATRO ESPERANZA

October 14 & 15, 7:30pm

Oedipus El Rey takes Sophocles’ Greek tragedy, where a destined king unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother, and sets it in the gritty, electrifying streets of Central L.A. This ancient story is told through the Chicano experience, where Oedipus has just been released from prison and is propelled to take control of his own destiny. As he challenges his own fate, he is consumed with the desire for power, which he cannot resist, until he realizes that the cards were always stacked against him.
