Playhouse on the Square
Conceived and Adapted by Lee Breuer
Music by Bob Telson
Lyrics by Bob Telson and Lee Breuer
Based on Sophocles’ Greek myth Oedipus and set in a contemporary African-American gospel church service, this production will move and thrill you with electrifying vocals. Scorned and aged, Oedipus arrives at Colonus where he will die as fate foretold. But before his demise, he must tell his side of events. His journey toward truth, self-understanding, and forgiveness comes with soaring songs and an ending to lift the soul.
