Sophocles: The Theban PlaysApply for Free Membership
The three Theban plays—Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone—tell the story of Oedipus and his family. The three plays carry forward the development of one legend and were composed almost across the length of Sophocles’ long writing career. Theses plays present a narrative study on the relationships between fathers and children. This version captures for modern audiences the excitement that these plays held for the original Greek audiences through a contemporary translation that remains true to the original text.
