The final theatre production of the season is the North American premiere of TREE OF OEDIPUS.
This new play developed by the Idea Theatre in Athens is having its American and English language premiere at the CSU Department of Theatre and Dance. It follows the lineage of Oedipus, from Cadmus, the first man and founder of Thebes, through the story of Oedipus' fall and redemption, to the deadly civil war between his sons, and the final battle between Creon and Antigone.
Compiled from several ancient Greek tragedies, including The Phoenicians, Oedipus Tyrannus, Oedipus at Colonus, Antigone, and Seven Against Thebes, this sweeping story is told by an ensemble of actors through classical acting, song, dance, vaudeville, clowning, acrobatics, and combat which combine into an exciting theatrical explosion.
English translation by current CSU Theatre major Christina Katsaras. Directed by Dr. Michael Mauldin. Created By Team IDEA (Kostas Gakis, Konstantinos Bibis, Athina Moustaka).
Tickets will go on sale July 1, 2018.
