South Texas College (STC) Theatre is ready to present Sophocles’ classic play Oedipus Rex which will run April 27 – 29 at 8 pm. There will also be a Sunday matinee on April 30 at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts Black Box Studio, located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.
Plague rages in the city of Thebes as King Oedipus seeks advice from the oracle of Apollo. What will bring salvation? The discovery and prosecution of the former King’s unknown murderer.
Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex was written more than 2000 years ago for the Great Spring Festival in honor of the god of spring. It is the reenactment of a human sacrifice. In narrative and mind, Sophocles commemorates the destruction of one man so that his people might live. Oedipus seeks the truth not knowing that it will destroy him in the process.
General admission tickets cost $5. Seating is limited. Advanced ticket purchases are highly recommended. April 30 matinee production will be interpreted in American Sign Language.
