Oedipus Schmoedipus

23rd March 2018

Oedipus Schmoedipus is about death: real death, fake death, and the Western theatrical canon. It’s joyful and dark, stupid and smart, hilarious and confronting.

An ambitious epic and an intentionally impossible task, Oedipus Schmoedipus takes dozens of the great theatre classics, picks out the death scenes, mixes them together and hands them back to the people.

For this mammoth undertaking of gore, laments and requiems, post are joined by a new cast of 25 locals for the performance. It’s a democratic theatrical extravaganza – there really isn’t anything quite like it.

“A live-action take on cartoon violence…slyly funny, completely chaotic and messily exhilarating.”
The Guardian
