OEDIPUS THE KING

Dates: 31 Jul - 31 Jul

Tickets: €20

OEDIPUS THE KING

Sophocles’ greatest tragedy and a powerful tale of the quest for truth at any cost…

The city of Thebes is damned; stricken by plague, its women are barren and its crops failing.  Among them is a man with a curse and only his banishment can return the city to its former glory. As King Oedipus embarks on a search for the man at the centre of the city’s fate, he begins to uncover the truth behind his own past – a revelation that will change the course of his life forever.

Following their production of The Bacchae, Classic Stage Ireland continues to explore the world of Ancient Greek drama with one of the founding myths of Western literature and greatest of all Greek plays, Sophocles’ Oedipus the King.

Post show discussion following the performance on Thursday 22 July.

What the critics thought:

“… a production by Classic Stage Ireland is always worth waiting for…” The Irish Times

“…Classic Stage Ireland company have hit the jackpot with their production of Oedipus the King….. It has clarity, it has solid production values and it has quite enough acting talent to leave the audience with a numbing sense of the play’s overwhelming greatness.” Sunday Independent

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
