The tragedy of Oedipus, who unknowingly slays his father and marries his mother, is one of the mythical cornerstones of Western civilization. Nicholas Rudall's new translation remains true to Sophocles original text while fashioning a language of grace and power, with contemporary players and theatergoers in mind.
