Oedipus Rex – the greatest of all Greek Tragedies. Thebes is under a curse. Disease and death haunt the city. King Laius has been murdered and his killer as yet remains uncaught. His successor, King Oedipus, swears he will solve the mystery, but finds to his growing horror that all the evidence points to himself.
And much worse is to come.
The Leper Chapel is one of the oldest and most atmospheric buildings in Cambridge, creating an ideal site for this powerful drama of corruption, ostracism and social cleansing.
in situ: Cambridge’s leading experimental theatre company, in a new and vibrant adaptation of Sophocles’ classic, performs inside, outside and all around this remarkable building.
