About This Show

Blind and broken, locked away by his warrior sons, Oedipus lives out his
days in sorrow and darkness. Meanwhile his sons Eteokles and Polyneikes
marshal armies to fight each other for control of Thebes. A desperate
Jocasta, mother and wife of Oedipus, tries to broker a truce between her
two sons/grandsons. But the inexorable fate of this family must be
fulfilled — her efforts are in vain, as her sons battle to the death. This production of Euripides’s Phoenician Women uses a new translation by Carl
R. Mueller.
