Oedipus Schmoedipus


Fed up with white men staging the deaths of white men in plays written by white men, the white ladies of Post have pirated the classics to confront the great unknown. Oedipus Schmoedipus is about death; real death, fake death, and the Western theatrical canon. It is joyful and dark, stupid and smart, hilarious and confronting. An ambitious epic and 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 each performance. It is a democratic theatrical extravaganza - there really is not anything quite like it.
