Sophocles' monumental treatment of this theme has been a staple of world theatre for more than two thousand years. Now Frank Galati, Tony Award-winning director and adapter (The Grapes of Wrath), fuses Sophocles' play with the ideas of Sigmund Freud and Jean-Paul Sartre in a bold and provocative re-telling of Greek mythology. Nudity and mature themes. Adpated and directed by Frank Galati. Learn more with "Unfolding Oedipus Complex," July 31 - August 1.
