WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

We all know the story -- or so we think -- of a young man who unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Sophocles' monumental treatment of this theme has been a staple of world theater for more than 2,000 years. In this bold and provocative re-telling of the myth, Goodman Artistic Associate and Tony Award- winning director and adaptor Frank Galati reimagines Sophocles' tragedy, fusing it with the words and ideas of Sigmund Freud -- the man whose revolutionary theories crossed the boundaries of science by using the art of myth, metaphor and dream to bring meaning to the ultimate human drama.
