WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In Oedipus El Rey, Luis Alfaro adapts the "mother" of all tragedies and the ultimate story of forbidden love. Amid the sizzling rhythms of central Los Angeles--the gang capital of America with the highest recidivism rate--a juvenile delinquent rises to be a king... But his passion for one woman will violate our most sacred law. Luis Alfaro is a Chicano playwright and filmmaker, born and raised in downtown Los Angeles. Among his many accomplishments, he was a resident artist at the Mark Taper Forum, where he was co-director of the Latino Theatre Initiative. As an activist, Alfaro works with at-risk youth, has co-founded three non-profit arts organizations, and chaired the Gay Men of Color Consortium.
