WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A terrible secret. A horrifying curse. A young king must use both his power and his cleverness to unravel a mystery and save his nation. But who will save him when he learns the shocking truth? PPT's new season opens with one of the greatest plays ever written, in a brilliant translation by Irish poet William Butler Yeats. Director Ted Pappas re-imagines Sophocles' work in a contemporary setting, breathing new life into this enduring classic.
