Dallas Theater Center presents Oedipus El Rey
Dallas Theater Center will present Oedipus El Rey, a play in which rhythms pound, violence escalates and a Chicano delinquent fights his way to the pinnacle of gangland power. But not even he can win the ultimate battle against fate. Playwright Luis Alfaro’s adaptation tears Sophocles’ timeless Greek tragedy out of its mythic past and catapults it into the reality of today’s L.A. barrios. The show will be performed in the Studio Theatre at Wyly Theatre.
