Adapted and Directed by Frank Galati

“Complex, cerebral and very interesting”

April 28 – June 3, 2007 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

90 minutes

Oedipus Complex

We all know the story—or so we think—of a young man who unknowingly kills his father and marries his mother. Sophocles’ monumental treatment of this theme has been a staple of world theater for more than two thousand years. In this bold and inspiring retelling of the myth, Goodman Artistic Associate and Tony Award-winning director and adaptor Frank Galati reimagines Sophocles’ tragedy, fusing it with the words and ideas of Sigmund Freud—the man whose revolutionary theories crossed the boundaries of science by using the art of myth, metaphor and dream to bring meaning to the ultimate human drama.
