Oedipus Rex

A joint senior production by Christ's College and Rangi Ruru Girls' School.

Oedipus Rex (Oedipus the King) is regarded by many as the pinnacle of Greek tragedy. It is a story most people know - even if they have never seen it.

After travelling from his homeland Oedipus rids the town of Thebes of the Sphinx who has been destroying anyone who cannot answer its riddle. Oedipus solves the puzzle and the townspeople are so grateful they crown Oedipus king, and marry him to Jocasta, their recently widowed Queen.

Oedipus Rex takes up the story many years later when the city is suffering from plague and famine. Searching for solutions Oedipus sends his trusted brother-in-law Creon to ask the Oracle at Delphi to help them. The Oracle’s answer will confound Oedipus and devastate all their lives.

Oedipus learns that, even unwittingly, you cannot offend the Gods and hope to survive unscathed.

This production of Oedipus Rex is an updated version of Sophocles play using a modern translation and a mixture of ancient and contemporary conventions.
