Play Description

Long considered one of the theatre’s great plays, this timeless story of murder, incest and a person’s preoccupation with one’s place in the universe begins UIS Theatre’s 2005-2006 World Tour of Drama season.

Written over two thousand years ago in ancient Greece, Sophocles’ masterpiece continues to pack a punch of relevancy for our contemporary world and the world of our future.
