A plague grips the city of Thebes. Desperate to save his people, King Oedipus sends a messenger to the oracle at Delphi and discovers that the city's salvation lies in finding and punishing the murderer of the former king, Laius, who was brutally slain by a stranger at a crossroads years ago. When Oedipus orders a manhunt, he unknowingly sets the wheels of his own destruction in motion. This lean, contemporary version brings a new, poignant power to this primal work that is the cornerstone of Western drama.

Published Reviews

"Shatteringly brilliant...builds with moment after moment of bitter beauty, its poetry and revelations coming in grave waves."

Rohan Preston, Star Tribune

"[McLaughlin] brings an appealingly modern poetic sensibility to Oedipus as well, teasing out contemporary-feeling questions of free will and intoxicating self-knowledge without losing the play's shamanistic insistence on fate's inexorability."
