Walden Theatre will present the classic tragedy of a Greek king in search of relief for his beleaguered province, who finds instead that he is himself responsible for the plague and misfortune of his people. In an effort to thwart his own destiny, Oedipus (played by Nathan Kaplin) unknowingly kills his own father, and marries his mother, fulfilling the exact prophecies he was trying to foil. Every year high school students across the country are required to read this piece of Classic Literature-what exactly is it meant to teach us? Join Walden Theatre as we explore what happens when pride and anger make us blind to our own true selves. Oedipus The King opens October 24th at the Clifton Center’s Eifler Theatre, and runs through the 27th. With only 4 public performances, and three sold out student matinees, you don’t want to miss this show! For tickets and more information call 589-0084.
