WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The time is the present; the place is a California prison system and a Los Angeles barrio. Oedipus's makes his epic journey along Highway 99, venturing from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Oedipus struggles against his tragic fate, all the while accompanied by a chorus of prison inmates. Luis Alfaro's modern interpretation of Sophocles' ancient tragedy is poetic and powerful, a modern-day myth.
