is a city—a city in trouble. It all seems tied up in the murder of
Laius, the previous king. Lucky for the citizens, Oedipus is in
charge now, and he’ll go to any length to solve the mystery. Who’s
to blame? Does Creon, his brother-in-law, want Oedipus out of the
way? Will the fortune teller, Tiresias, ever reveal what he truly
knows? Did the shepherd put the kibosh on the king? What do we
really know about Oedipus’s wife, the fatally beautiful Jocasta? Is
she somehow more than what she seems? And with a troubled family
past, and a curse hanging over his head, should Oedipus be looking
even closer to home, or is he too blind to see the truth? This play
by Sophocles has been called “the first detective story,” and here
Greek tragedy crashes into the gritty pictures and colorful words
from film noir, in a shadowy, dangerous world of detectives,
secrets, and femme fatales.
