Oedipus Tyrannus, A Performance Workshop
Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Zumberge Hall 352
First produced around 429 BCE at the City Dionysia in Athens, Sophocles' much-celebrated Oedipus Tyrannus tells the story of a man who unwittingly commits unspeakable crimes and searches for the culprit. Participants of Greek Tragic Poets (GR345) lead a performance workshop on the play's themes of responsibility and the virtues of self-possessions and reverence in daily life.
