About This Show

Theater By The Blind, the only blind theater company in the United States,
celebrates its 25th Anniversary with the opening of Seneca’s Oedipus, adapted by Ted Hughes from a translation by David Anthony Turner.

This well-known story of the man who unknowingly murders his father and
marries his mother explores the themes of fate, free will, and family. The play
unflinchingly confronts the burdens we all must carry in life but offers
acceptance, purification and freedom as the possible reward for facing them.

This production of Oedipusis set in the modern day Oval Office. “We’re not saying that Oedipus is Bush, far from it,” says director Ike Schambelan, “but in this
country he would be President, that’s certainly the parallel. We’re thinking of
him as any President, all Presidents.”
