This classic Greek tragedy tells the story of King Oedipus as he tracks down the murderer of the old King of Thebes. While a plague falls on the city, oracles decipher prophecies, trust is lost, and time is slipping away for Oedipus to find out the truth about his reign as King...
The Classics and Ancient History Society and Underground Productions couldn’t be more proud to present our first ever collaboration of OEDIPUS REX, running from April 29, 30 at the UQ Natural Ampitheatre. Don't miss out on this timeless tragedy, come along and take a step back to Ancient Thebes!

What the critics have said:
"δεῖ γὰρ καὶ ἄνευ τοῦ ὁρᾶν οὕτω συνεστάναι τὸν μῦθον ὥστε τὸν ἀκούοντα τὰ πράγματα γινόμενα καὶ φρίττειν καὶ ἐλεεῖν ἐκ τῶν συμβαινόντων: ἅπερ ἂν πάθοι τις ἀκούων τὸν τοῦ Οἰδίπου μῦθον."
'The plot [of a tragedy] should be so constructed that even without seeing the play anyone hearing of the incidents happening thrills with fear and pity as a result of what occurs. So would anyone feel who heard the story of Oedipus.' - Aristotle
