WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Set in South Central Los Angeles, Luis Alfaro's Oedipus el Rey is an electrifying new take on Sophocles's classic tragedy. Oedipus is reimagined as a troubled Latino whose dreams of controlling his own destiny soar above the barbed wire of the prison where he's spent his life. But in a place where everyone is trapped — by desperation or fate, history or violence — no one man can change his story alone. Love, family, and belief collide in this chilling new play that asks, "What's fate, and what's just the system?"
